Innocent April · Belinda Subraman

the crazed wavy edges of joy
tickle transcendant neurons
to frothy spires of awe

flowers bloom
in watercolor abandon
warm chime breezes
swell expectation
halos of green
renew the trees
sprouts push through
reaching

everything laughs
in fullness

birds are coming home
