Easter 2010 – George Delany

Easter 2010

By George Delany

After 3 days of wicked spring rains
A flooded basement
A car sunk into saturated earth
Lifeless, like a dead dinosaur
Spirits weighted down under
The presence of so much water
I spy along the edge of the stone wall
Amidst the carnage of the storm
Debris everywhere
A sea of leaves soaked browned
By relentless winds of winter
Rocks and mud all about
Leafless trees
Everywhere a palette of somber earth tones
Grays, charcoals and browns
Monopolize my beat-up field-of-view like war
A single solitary daffodil, green stemmed,
Her silent, solo, yellow face opened wide
She turns in brilliant salutation
To brightly welcome the sun
