The differences


Hearing knocking on the door is different from knocking on the window

Knocking on the mind is different from knocking on the heart

Woodpecker pecks trees, finch cracks nuts

Stones shine differently in the river, birds sing different songs

Daffodils from the countryside adorned tables

Spring equinox arrived yesterday.

Saturday in the vineyards

On some mornings
dreamers and early risers
travel in flames and floating baskets
of hot air balloons
over a landscape of hills
covered in whiteness,
vineyards in early bloom.

Cyclists attired in solemn black
or patches of colors,
dot the roads,
a pilgrimage of solitude

Travelers in their own
separate worlds living
a dream of spring.
