shimmer

10:02
suddenly
just like
that
the light changes
and here in mid-October
it is April
things are soft
the sky is soft
green growing things stretch
tremble
yearn
yielding to warmth & airplanes
somewhere to the east
a dog barks
a wren pings the vastness
soft
no blue in the sky
the sun soft against the clouds
layered white upon gray upon white
only clouds
AH! Look there! a small patch of blue opening ...
opening
a perfect azure
trembling
yearning
yielding to sun
to this day
suddenly a yellow leaf falls
breaking the April spell
it is October
again
10:10
the softness remains ...
