Lifeline

She caught herself staring

At a desolate tree

Peeling bark and leafless branches

Reaching

Into the cold

Crystal blue sky

Where puffy clouds floated

Aloofly by

Unaware of its reach

For something

Nothing

Anything at all

She caught herself staring

At a cardinal

Just starting to sing

And found a lifeline

Between

Fall and spring

Thanks for stopping by!
