Testing The Sun

Testing The Sun

 

Its about to happen

You can feel it

 

There’s a bursting scented vibrancy

Lingering

Happening

Almost

Ready

 

A slow stretching yawn reverberates

It dissipates and grows

Permeates

Percolates

Rushes outward

But

Waits

 

Sleepily cracking an eye

It peers around

Secretly shaking off blankets

Dabbles a toe in the air

Testing the sun

 

If you wait, listen to the stillness

You can hear rising sap

Drawing deep upward to buds

Which seem to scream a new green

And ache for the moment of leaves

 

The colours are mixing

Designing chemicals of fluorescence

Predicting their flourishes of blooming petals

Teasing

Niggling

At the edges of their swelling

And somnolent slumbery

Deliberating

On seconds

They

A – C – H – E

In yellow Mimosa puffs 

 

Already they are dreaming

Caught between the spurt of seed

Dreaming of splashes fecundate

And the tiny feet of insects

The great call of their rainbow hues

Is ready to set a fire

In time to stride in their glory

Through to summer

 

But

Wait

The tiny buds have yet to taste

A drop of rain

And yet to bask for at least a day

In golden heat

Precipitates

Perambulates

Perchance to ponder

Proliferates

Languid time

Wakes

 

Timeless

 

Spring
