The last leg of winter


Spring Will Come

Spring will come despite the rain—
wild mustard and garlic a tangled skein
of yellow and white; forget-me-nots
on hillsides and in puddling ruts
misting in drifts of blue.

Mothwing petals sift past quince,
blooming bare-branched beneath
the plumed plum. Despite the rain,
despite the pain—or is it from,
or through? Prepositions don’t matter;
spring will come.

Have a great day with a new smile filled with promise of renewal.

I am always sad when winter has passed, it's my favourite season.
