advent a light year to go

sun-risen 
the buttercups
in spring rain
just a little frog
liking butter

little frog in butterflight

this jaundiced view of buttercups

closing in time a buttercup to light

Moore's madonna—
the spaces we occupy
seen through too
home to roost
night in-stills itself
within us
advent host
second guessed
in coming
daylight 
drizzle 
now 
light
