Wetlands
Poem by Steven Jacobson

July 18, 2013

spring time brings willows blooming in the
marshes, skirting the shallow shoreline.
small game, swallows, gulls, finches and
black birds harbor themselves amongst
yellow-green shoots and reeds and stalks
and wispy and spinally young ferns and firs.
smaller vegetation, dandelions and cross-bred
grass weave a velvety tapestry on the outskirts.
an eagle takes center stage, soaring effortlessly
overhead. the billowy white clouds kaleidoscope
against the blue sky from moment to precious
moment. the breeze, gusty winds and sunshine
exchange voices, complementing and completing
the perfect picture in time and space.
