image - Woodford Square, downtown Port of Spain, Trinidad

a tree blooms
all of yesterday

now stirred
to mind across

in a country
disguised in
the hurry

of a wound
where sand

the jar from within
and without

yellow blooms
appease a call to caring
cherish life

Bill said...

The first three lines form a perfect haiku in themselves, reminding me of one of my favorites from the Japanese masters.

calm days
the swift years

Robyn Greenhouse said...

spring time, new blooms can remind us to cherish life!

Adelaide said...

Nothing blooming here, yet.

longer days
moving slowly into spring
flueries and sunshine


Magyar said...

... and to parallel Bill:

a tree buds
past failures left behind
old leaves

And yet... the old leaves, nurture these new buds; the contrary contraries.

__A grand run here, Gillena! _m
