Magnolia White

Magnolia petals
beneath a March sky,
clouds ribboned with sunlight.

I sit on the balcony in Trier,
five floors high
above foreign trees
bursting with spring.

Rooftops, slate grey
undulate the city scape.
Distant hills breathing,
still winter brown
along the Moselle river.
It is early for boat trips
to lazy lunch in Saarburg.

Surrounded by apartments,
so many lives hidden
Behind concrete walls.
There is only the hum of trafic,
no birdsong here,
but the Cherry trees
are in full bloom.
