Stay

Stay

 

A merlin grips the branch 

with a light but taloned touch

 

unhurried

like this season 

of ice

and sky

and mud

 

that squeaks and cracks 

under the hare’s 

quick feet

now peppered with 

 

gray

like the clouds spilling

snowflakes

 

which drift 

onto you 

and the bud bent aspen 

with a whispering

 

message

that melts on your skin

 

stay

stay 

stay 

 

stay with this in between

 

there is more for us here

than you think

is not.
