Sunrise After The Storm

Wood_Anemone__Anemone_quinquefolia

sunrise
after the storm . . .
glistening lake-waves
branches coated with ice
and a crow cawing

after the storm
driftwood washes to shore
from other places . . .
what we let go
what we keep

Written for my father, Harold A. Borgh,
March 24, 2011.  It’s now 30 years since
my father’s passing.

We shall meet again.
