On Watching an Amaryllis Bloom


On Watching an Amaryllis Bloom
A wild patience has taken me this far… Adrienne Rich

A patience expectant,
unconfining,
that is learning
by fingering shapes imagined
an artful piecing
of what has been
since the beginning,
and thought that is now,
and wonder at what could be;
while, oh glory,
intently, purposefully,
ruminating
on the real:

the progressive
trumpeting of
blooming amaryllis jazz
that deepens daily
my hope in beauty.
