Heart blossoms

…an almond tree in blossom, unfurling

white petals against a deepening green,

brown brushstrokes scarring the field,

and in the center of the decentered vista,

a fleck of canvas erupts through the paint,

as when air thrusts itself to fill a vacuum,

or after galactic gyrations the light

of a now-cold star reveals itself to us

and breaks the settled pattern of the sky.
