Claramarie Burns

arriving, destination unknown

trumpet trembles high note
catastrophe : averted

                               is this where we get off?
                stop requested
                                      old energies

wait    no hurry

                here we go    & fly

sequence of monsters

                               benign / otherwise
play of light

                             remember / expect / see
shift of light in leaves in breeze
late winter early spring this memory / expectation /

                                         fantastic unread dreamed

wait for it.
