it’s been the first week of warmer weather
around these sceneries.
anytime that warm breeze sweeps in
through the slanted windows of this top floor apartment
and caresses the bare skin and all these tiny hairs,
a jolt hits these limbs
and makes their waking superb.
indeed, this is no time to pass up on
for boredom and listlessness;
rather, it is a time to get out there
and gently participate
in the slower pace of the world,
the mindful way of moving about.
it’s a time to rediscover the spaces available
as they, too, reassemble their pieces
after the winter months.
and it’s time to let the breeze whisk a little
what’s been stagnant for too long.
things won’t be the same after this,
but honestly, have they ever been the same
in the springtime
as we knew them before?
