Untitled (Blooming, A Scattering of Blossoms
& Other Things)

(after the painting by Cy Twombly)
by Neil Ellman

Plum blossoms
explode in pink exuberance.

It is spring
and the rose-like scent of peonies
fill the air.

It is the dawn of creation
the beginnings of life
scattered sky, a garden,
a pond where lilies float
on silent rafts

wind sows life and death
then life again.
it is spring, coming and going
then coming again
on flowering wings.
