Up And Up

~ Dedicated to my grandmother MKW on her birthday 21 February 1907.

I seldomly leave my dreams

to see the moon blessing branches

bold play in the early morning.

Today I rise, wan and stumbling

out into the early dawn.

A songbird heralds spring.

These magnolia buds are lit

determination to grow.

The bankruptcy of winter

ominous and threatening

is loosening its nightmare.

It’s never too late to begin.

Again the seeds have

cracked in the dark,

rooting and stretching

to this new light


undermine the poverty

of this frigid season.




Inspired by:  Bankruptcy, Seldomly, Undermine and Wan.
