Social Isolation: Day 91

Social Isolation: Day 91
It’s snowing cottonwood fluff
today, so light some of it floats
up while some settles
on the water, floats there.
I’d like to be that light
on summer air

and not imagine viruses
floating unseen between us,
not land on all we
have got wrong
and need to fix.
One weightless seed
may root somewhere
nearby and grow
into a sapling,
grow into a tree.
I’d like to be that generative.
Never mind the odds.
