i draw the blanket  

around my neck

to cover my shoulder

grateful for grandma’s

patient fingers

on the violet blue quilt



the holly bush quakes

to the rhythm

of our first norther


i wonder how it survives out there


it says:

i shake

i quiver

with a river inside

stop now

and find it

in you

A remarkable bit of poetry, leaving something to ponder with those closing words.

You subtly suggest there is a connection between plant life and humans I think. Shaping of the poem very effective. An evocative comparison.

It seems you gather wisdom from nature. I am so glad you share it with us. Great read, dear friend. One that should be taken to heart.
