BLUE


Dull morning, dove-colored sky, black trees.
Winter at its most monochrome. Months
until spring; donít even think about it. Then
squawk, thereís a jay, a pure blue verb
landing on the feeder. And suddenly, you see
delphiniums, larkspur, hydrangeas.
And suddenly, even sorrow is bearable.
~Barbara Crooker
