When I Dream
by Ken Hada


the branches quicken
green, snow melts, grass
emerges overnight

When I dream

policeman don’t shoot
us and preachers remain true
to their first love

When I dream

color unites us, warms
our cold hands by a fire
glowing small and still

branches quicken
green, snow melts, grass
flourishes in dark night

When I dream
