Your Appearance is Timely, a poem

FontCandy (22)


Your appearance

is timely,

I have waited long

to see your triumphant push

against the hardened earth

to see your folded petals

emerge from their cocoon.


I stand watching –

counting your leaning appendages

memorizing the periwinkle lines

that trace across your back.

I may snap a photo,

camera raised

with care and caution,

but similarly –

as I’m watching,

I am writing a poem.

Words come alive

at your embrace

and also, I

raise my painter’s brush,

though I am not an artist.

I paint the edges

of your essence

upon my own soul.


is just another day,

one – among many

but I found it

ever more valuable

finding joy

in your presence.
