Air in the garden is lighter, my breath easier.

Two petite daffodils--
pure essence of yellow
with a smell of heaven
and early spring.
They are the color of Amanda’s
wool coat. A sprig of crocosmia
adds her crimson headband.
Air in the garden is lighter, my breath
easier. I believe again in hope, vaccines,
the future of our planet, goodwill,
and good intentions.
The potted buckeye tree,
a seedling gift to my daughter
from her preschool teacher,
is almost ready to crack open its buds
and unfurl such green new leaves.
I want to suspend this tenderness of hope
the way the hummingbird hovers near my face
in a quiet vibration of wings.
