High Park This Week in TO

High Park and all of Toronto got to finally indulge in double digit Spring warmth. And the trees responded with bright red and subtle yellow-green buds – making a walk and picture taking a pleasure. Here is what I saw:

Plunge to the Depths

It is the surface ripples and forms
that draw attention outward and around
to a week ago rippled by snowstorms
alighting without a scintilla of wind skirmish,

yet now  we see  the plates
the plates that you and eyes
take for not-impartial colored fates
hanging like a jazz riff raff upon

the surface entangled and reflecting
depth yet to be discovered
yet another time for risking

a lure of ever wider comprehension
only to skim along another liquid tiling
enchanted with all its wonder
above and in depth below.
