Brighter light 

Lighter shadows

 

Cherry-blossom-afros

on the trees 

 

Ease 

       of movement

 

in silky 

butterscotch air 

 

Coats open -- 

 

elbows and bare arms 

appear 

 

Finally, the body 

untenses

           after winter

 

Bird song 

pours     la la la 

 

between the words

and buildings
