Coming Back To The Hedges In Bloom

coming back to the hedges in bloom,
when you unlatch the gate,
will you see this as before?

home. after long wars.
and the fractured time awash
in lilies now; the afternoon sun,

the myriad rainbows
focused into one,
over the front porch;

the holly bushes
in the side yard;
the breeze in the alley way,

the quiet in the heart.
