Breaking the seal

It has built up slowly
Imperceptibly
A drip, drip, drip
Drop.

Until swollen with more than
One person can carry
The seal stretches and fractures.

A pause then…

A rush gush swoosh gurgle
It flows out with such force
Driving everything from it
Carried away on a flow.

This river undammed
Will leave destruction behind it.
The dangerous force
Of pent up emotion
Uncorked.

A brightening spell

A wedge of sunlight
props
open
the door to the garden.

Spring has opened her arms,
stretched,
and yawned
then pushed out some buds.

Silhouettes sharpen with the shadow of daylight
As the grass warms
and shoots skyward.

Lift the casement
and let in dust
spiral……..
and birdsong.
This is a morning of joyous rebirth.
