Hidden Blues


Oh. White.
Go bright.

Oh no.

Rain pounding
Pouring, dumping,
Grey spreading
Circling, covering.

Hours passing
Never-ending
Blue hiding
Peeking, relieving.

Ah. Blue.
Thank you.

Oh yes.

Stump

If you pause
And hold so still
Barely breathe-
Yes: movement nil;

Look to the right
In ivy leaves five
Just a flash
Flash alive;

Stay still now
And look again;
Sparkles appear
In sets of ten;

If still you be
And still you stay
Fairies will dance
And in ivy play

Stepping in time
With the blink of your eye
Just wait; Just look
Once: they will fly

And you will see
Briefly: A pas de chat;
A turn of a wing
Then gone, like that.
