Bumblebee window

In bumblebee windows 
winter has gone

Still slanted sunlight
carries us along

Shadows on the wall
of bumblebees in the air

Catches a cat napping

That bumblebee shadows
dance in his hair

And bumblebees rattle
the window there

Lazy cat's still
dreaming of wintertime

Lazy people still
waiting for spring to arrive

But I have awakened
to the possibilities

Of bumblebee spring
in place of winter dreams

Of windows of sunlight
in place of dark memories

And bumblebee windows 
that comfort me.
