break through in escalating expressive detail

Posted to Action Poetry




in the spring when april turns
things creep up to the surface
daffodil, crocus, tulip
fields of kentucky blue
things tumble from the sky
rain, birds in flight
shreds of cloud
you're caught in the middle
itching to grow
hungry to fly
waiting fer a chance
to break through
in escalating expressive detail
like a lion prowling higher
like a feather falling fast
