From the Left (Day 247)

Today slanted  golden  from the left 
throwing shade 
       on the world  unseen 
since yesterday   one step closer 
to completely abolished 
to silence 
to the barely audible 
hiss of snowfall and wind 
       like blades of blue 
           steel cutting deeply 
where sap surges and tingles 
soon turning 
crimson and flame   pushing life 
upward  throwing verdant foliage into 
relief  knowing that after 
the fall 
    the winter 
        the spring 
dazzling  two steps forward  to the right  
again  almost before it begins.
