Joe Redota Trail

A pair of wings
flutters flashes
of gold and orange

Brown leaves
cling to their trees
even as green
overtakes them

A rusted chain
hangs from an old
wooden post

White wild daisies
pop from the
edges of concrete

One blue jay
takes its chances
and hops across the road

My heart wants
to close
It opens
to whatever season
comes
