On Easter

     Photo by Mary Bach

This morning the moon  
begins to wane
in the lightening sky.
Mourning doves call to
you, you, you
but jays and wrens and barn swallows
are chirping too.
Outside the window
there are ten thousand branches, more
that were dead,
now, near bursting
with a million, million buds.
Don’t tell me there are no miracles.


Thank you for the prompt of a 55 word piece, and the subject of Easter in the Imaginary Garden with Flash 55 Plus.  This is also for Day #5 of PAD.  Happy Easter or Sunday or whatever you are celebrating today.

  4. I love the sounds of the doves, and the sense that spring comes just when we need it most, for us, with its million buds. Enjoy your holiday gathering, Mary.

  5. The miracles of nature happen despite the presence of man - and are hardly recognized. It is good to read of your love for the good things of Earth.
