Plum blossom

March Andre's plum blossom

the spikes are stuck with froth
black branches clouded
with honey scent
and the brindled buzzing of bees

blue sky and blossom

once frost-furred
the plums are clad
in gull-soft drapery
as spring water

march plum blossom

crisp white
cut out against the blue
a railing of blossom
against the buffeting sea
the house sails

house through blossom
