Altered Course

Father—this?

Is this the answer

matched to my question?

Do sunflowers grow

beneath a winter window?

Or birds face north

at winter storm’s suggestion

when sense and longing

ply against the wind, snow?

Ah—

Can some grace

so disguised in grander reason

grow up against

my season?
