Sometimes Nouns Are Verbs (NaPoWriMo 4/6/14)

Sometimes Nouns Are Verbs

Out my springtime southwest window,
white pines rejoice in the
Wisconsin wind and

corroborate in a cabaret
of their own creation.
Some needle bunches sway side to side

like lovers interlaced in languid embrace.
Others bounce brusquely up and down
like children marching up an uneven hill.

Over there, clumps attract attention
with abrupt and fanciful flings.
And there! See them float like ladies’

slik scarves caught in a brisk breeze
while bunches more circle like
a crazed condutor’s baton

in a flourish of major movement.
Outside my springtime southwest window
I am reminded of the marvel all about me—

Sometimes nouns are verbs!
