April Winds by Michael Lee Johnson

Featured Poem / Fall/Winter 2015

April Winds

April winds persist
in doing charity work
early through
willow tree branches
melting reminisces of
snow crystals
on my balcony.
Canadian geese wait
impatiently for their
winter feeding below.
The silent sounds
they hear-
no dropping
of the sunflower
