TOWARD THE NAME
The foliage comes together in a branch
And only over its top
The penetration of the breeze
Exercises visible dominance.
The branch of springtime is
Unfolding itself. Now the flower
Is starting to acquire colour
Slowly. Just pinkish?
No, no. The flower is getting impatient,
It wants to fulfill its name: lilac.
