For Today (and Amanda)

Today I felt

like the wind

does 

at the

front

of a new cold fling

so unsure

of its chill

and its tension

if it’s

to be

now winter

or spring.

 

And today I felt

like the earth

does 

when the

roots 

of flowers strain

so sure

of their want

to touch bedrock

spindling

down like

the hair

like the veins. 

 

And today I felt

like the man

does

with a

year 

of fresh brave change

so quick

now between

earth and flower

smiling 

up at

a hand

at a name
