A Civic Nature

Construction siteDriving down the road
I see new construction
at the business park
near where Jason worked.
Going to visit family,
I see the road is all torn up
and construction is in full force
I read an article in the news
about a new restaurant
going into a development
along the river
I think to myself
If Jason were still alive


A spring from the ground in the springMovement
waking and stretching
as if from a long nap
spring is here
the air feels different
the birds
oh my goodness, the birds
singing their sweet songs
pulling forth life
from within my being
hello spring
Going for a walk
looking for a spring pic
came upon a spring
bubbling up from the Earth
felt right.
