Rose Bush, Cherry Tree

20061114

The earth knows only two seasons.

The sharp, still, arctic cold of February, 100 days off,
The soft, syrupy, tropical warmth of August, 100 days past.

A little more than a moon away, the wane of light completes.

An instant of pause, the sun will still,
then renew it’s measured climb through indifferent cold.
