Catkins in Early Spring
Originally uploaded by Theorris
My new house causes me to walk farther to reach the bus stop each morning. My walk, however, leads me past various interesting trees and plants. The other morning, I noticed that one of my gnarly favorites had set its catkins out. I stood, taking pictures of it, and nearly missed my bus.
As the city flew by, I wrote the following:
Cat paws on brown twigs,
Warm against early spring wind,
I forget my time
