HORIZON OBSCURED
(4/9/10)


they thrill
with Spring's
broad stroke
of green
filling this
outline
of life

I mourn
the shrinking
sky
and long
for the dry
desert kiss
of an open
expanse

give me
a limitless
window
to space
uncluttered
by vernal
valances

give me
unfettered light
both sun
and star
to guide
me

save
the shadows
for those
in love
with the
leaves

they
know not
my dismay
