What Do We Have?

Tulips have bloomed in the Netherlands.

What do we have?

Bare branches.

Flooded beds.

Rotting, hollow stems.


The Earth is still brown

but the blue is returning to the sky

and the ocean moves freely.

We don’t have floral breezes

but we have the frog song from the marshes.

We have the sound of wetness seeping into the ground.

We have these grey trees

trying their hardest

to receive all the earth and sun give.
