~notes on winemaking

    tilt your head, small bird
listen to the coming rain moisten
the tree as she
lifts her leaves to flirt with
wind

observe the way her slight limbs
sway
the delicate shape of her boughs
pressing
arcing against the plum skin of a
thundering sky
pressing
until plump clouds burst
blackberries to wine

tilt your head, small bird
as she flowers like dogwood
