early bloom

- The Ledger Independent, November 2, 2007

a Bradford pear tree
was in full BLOOM,
led authorities to close
interstate 75,

sweeps leaves away
over the whir
of passing cars
on that August morning.

My first attempt at a found poem. I was sick while attempting this. Hence the shortness. I might revisit this one when I am feeling much better. Or, I might attempt a new one later and see what comes out. At least, I like where this one was headed.
