Zawmb’yee Nuje Writes a Poem, Actress Waxes Poetic

The Season After Winter

by Zawmb’yee Nuje

To walk
the beat of the beating sun light show
beat metered by trees
light tune for strollers and lovers
warm for sitters and babies
babble day in the park
parked at a joy spot
spotting a squirrel
squirreling away memory
ripples and fluttering birds
of a feather tickle day, is to
spring up, jump
hey there

there above the wall, still see
the street in chatter-walking glory
as we saw

and we drank in the day
springy stepped and steeped in joy
walking by

by benches flecked with
picnickers carousing, singles,
double-troublers, troubadours
some at ease, one at an easel
painting scenery
of us

to be warm
