Nancy Spring, Postponed
There is a dirty light
where there was
clean clear air and water
Snowy egrets had
dipped in and out
of the fresh green pond.

Black grass rings the pond now
They set the fire
for the birds
for the future.

Now, a lone duck dips
his long neck
in the brown burned
water and emerges unrefreshed.

The black grass looks so tired.
How long will it take to
grow back?
In ironic detachment, the trees will flower pink
undaunted by the predator fire.

Very pretty images of the landscape - even with the fall out of fire Nancy.

yes I agree Clarissa it is a lovely picture, the pink flowers against the starkness of the blackened grass, almost a natural yin and yang <3
