One moment, earthshine
pure white rain from soundless sky
sparrow eyes shining

North facing window
we open and then leave open
rain dripping off eaves

Porch screen undulates
like shadows of heron wings
seeking their shelter

Cool wind off the lake
spring slips in through blue shadows
red buds sing to joy

This morning, no news
only wind chimes, eggs sizzling
red pepper and thyme

Through morning darkness
red wings unfold a prayer
shimmering the hours.

Hospitals grow dim
Against cobalt evening sky
April stars shine down

In the strange quiet
The world pauses, listening —
Another heartbeat gone.

Somewhere, everywhere
Music rains from balconies
Shimmering streets with love
