Chinaberry Blossom

chinaberry blossom
write it
write it with gold ink
and purple perfume
this is the scent of spring
spring in the harsh brown hills

grass and undergrowth
tree and vine
write in curling choreography
and pale green hue
this is the color of spring
spring in the dull grey hills

wind puffs
dancing in the brush
write them in blue
write with the lightest of touch
these are the thoughts of spring
spring in the still hot hills

dewdrop and rain
small streams rippling
write in thick strokes
in water-white and the yellow of sun
this is the feel of spring
spring in the dry dead hills
