Springtime in the city. Birds call.

(Back by popular demand. OK. Back by request of my husband and my sister-in-law.)

Springtime in the city. Birds call.

Vibrant Green on Berry Black
This is the color of spring-time

Light pink petals f
alling against rows of cars
This is the look of spring-time

Springtime in the city. Birds call.
The Sun streaks across the city,
brushing hillsides and sweeping against
high buildings

Light slants through the shadows of highrises
Diving down to touch heads lifting up from Winter

Laughter tinkles from behind wide sunglasses
Arms and legs stretch out against restaurant patio tables
Soaking up sun and heat and day and Spring.

Thank you! I'm looking at my framed prints of the cherry trees on the Willamette as I read this...
