Flutters of orange and black

- - Sangita Kalarickal

Summer is but a flitting thought On the wings of a hummingbir­d, Winter is the six-month truth. Long.

But for now

Among stolen moments of the weather

Delicate butterflie­s create a tornado

Of wishes and wannabes

The Monarch visits to dance

Before the flowers wither

And foliage says their weak goodbyes.

Winter is the six-month truth. Long.

But certainty

Of crocuses and snowdrops linger

As the harbingers of spring Slumber deep

Within the white bosom of the earth A cycle repeats

In the twilight zone Dandelion dreams always Haunt.
