Good Friday

Showy Orchis

 

 

Currency

Dandelions
        blooming in the soccer field
fly up
        into the windbreak pines –
30 goldfinches
        on Good Friday. Thirty,
I counted them,
        not silver coins but weightless
currency
        to purchase . . . what?

Winter
        breaks without a promissory note,
mockingbird
        can’t hold back his chorus.
Tristis
        the goldfinch, sad one named
not for color
        but for his song. Barter
as I may
        there are some things I can’t
repay.

.    .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .
