“The Thaw”, poetry………….


Watercolor, Jane Kohut-Bartels, 2005


Spring comes drumming through

Breaking up ice in the creek

Destroying a beaver dam

And with the unexpected noise-

The un-damming of my heart

A softening of my bones

A juiciness of loins

A waving of budding branches

In a new born wind-

Encircling tender arms-

A phantom will o’ wisp lover.

Spring comes drumming through,

Cracking open where winter nailed me shut.

    That is so true, spring comes in like a drum beats. That is a reflective analogy to what happens in nature. xxTR
