Spring To Summer Poem

Without Time

By Marilyn McIntyre

This poem was conceived and written on request from Kubus Literaturverlag. The gentlemen, who owns the publishing company, wrote around the world asking for everyone to take the same five minutes on a given day and write about it, take a picture, whatever. This is what I wrote...

It's spring here
or so they tell us
the squirrels don't care
the weather's not sure

Summer's coming
always is, at the equator
deer rummage the forest floor
foxes bathe their pups
and the sun knows

Somewhere it's autumn
the birds nest anyhow
dandelions grow, smiling
the grass stands up and moves
I, myself feel cool

Winter at the Pole
geese hiss their goslings
into bluebells, dancing
and the stream rushes along
he knows where he's going

Spring is here
again without a timepiece
nature lets loose her bounty
the ice slinks into the water
time and infinity know.
