Like Sunlight

This entry was posted by on Saturday, 5 June, 2010 at

After the white and pink blossoms fall

golden mustard combs the orchard and spreads

across the fence like sunlight.

The roadside is inhabited by faith.

In a vacant lot

between tallĀ  buildings this upcoming yellow

grows tall as a forest.

Redwing-blackbirds sing canticles there.
