Almond Tree

The wind brushes whispering dry paper bark –

it tastes like the footprints of bees,

tastes like foaming petal smoke,

and drifts of antique yellow blossoms

ride like kisses on a gnarled green branch.

Bitter sap flows, hidden beneath creamy soft buds

sweet pollen drifts to the skies.

Almond tree in bloom.
