Poet’s Corner: ‘Shadbush Signals’


Shadbush Signals
By Jeffrey Agnoli

Shadbush trees of all sizes
bloom along the roads
and through the mostly leafless woods
signaling with sprays of white
the return of the green wave
whose renewing life
will soothe wintered eyes
lift conflicted hearts
and transform inner space.

Jeffrey Agnoli lives in Edgartown. His short poems can be viewed on Instagram at #deiku.
