April in sunshine

d55d9-rockefelleruniversityskyThis is a benevolent bright morning,
The breeze ruffles the flag that
Flies in the park, and the one that
Sits atop the school house two
Blocks down, my view unobstructed
Carries through sky, over a tree or two
To the river on the east, unobstructed
The wind, too weak to move the branches
Plays gently with the flag and then
Lets it go, limp in the morning light, then
Everything is still in the sunlight, branches
Commanding, waiting for the feathery
Greenery that will emerge, leaves like
Feathers, a pale green at first, gentle like
The breeze ruffling a flag, wisps of feathery
Air undermining the quiet of the morning
