A flush of green
Lilac, lavender, sweet
the soft puff of dandelion seeds
A hawk gliding on a breeze
Caterpillars bungee jump from trees
Wheeling Creek hushed by leaves
A couple sitting on its bank
heads tilted back
eyes closed
the sun drawing
freckles on their nose
Their shoes, their socks
kicked off
The long wear of winter lifted
A shift
a quiet celebration
