Poetry #532
(published March 31, 2011)
Window on April
by Joanna M. Weston
branches gilded with sunlight
uphold the brilliance of blue
with an occasional fluff of cloud

a white butterfly
flutters up
darts away

chestnut buds gleam like pale candles
while maple buds soften—
only the walnut holds to winter

Joanna M. Weston has had poetry, reviews, and short stories published in anthologies and journals for twenty five years. She is the author of the middle-reader, Those Blue Shoes (published by Clarity House Press) and the poetry chapbook A Summer Father (published by Frontenac House of Calgary).
