Now freshly furnished, 2021
Unboxes its February futon
Floating on lapping oceans
Dreaming, roses and gladiolas
Raising the Spring of the south
Hiking Winter’s cedared north.
In a year, thus far:
Where solitude is the new entourage,
And, where change is the new orange,
How picturesque unspoiled the tundra,
Flowing from the horn of a birthed eon,
Slipping in quietly, pouring dew at Dawn,
Carefully placing today’s origami folds in
A time capsule himitsu-bako (puzzle box)
To be unboxed by the future’s golden lasso.
