Scents

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

As I walk around the park, with my furry companion
We pass the trees that have new blooms
I wish I knew the name of the trees
The blooms are so fragrant
I am drawn to the nearest branch
where Spring fills the senses

Looking out onto the big lake
Her flanks seasoned with the weather

Spring brings a sense of renewal
the smell of the earth
a core of a leaf just as it starts to unfurl
the rush of a misted breeze

The river bottom is lush
even in an early spring hike
Blooms appear brighter
greens appear calmer

Shift 2012

The season has twisted
there is a definite shift
right of center
then soon
back again

Dancing Oak 2012

Dancing Oak

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

Centuries past pagan tune
plays to the old oak
as it tips and sways
in the last remaining rays
of the failing spring sun
