Five poems, five lines, five syllables

ONE
osprey standing proud
wind-ruffled feathers
sharp beak, sharp talons
sharp eyes watch for prey
owning this river

51

 

TWO
most call you a weed
I see a flower
most would destroy you
I pick your seed head
make a wish and blow

52

 

THREE
I wish I could feel
the stories you’ve lived
touch your rough ridges
ascertain your truths
splinters withstanding

53

 

FOUR
february lull
deserted branches
streets stripped of traffic
evergreen signals
drive us into spring

54

 

FIVE
skating on thin ice
isn’t as dire as
it’s cracked up to be
if the ice holds, it’s
icing on the cake

55
