Persistent Spring


Just when I despair that winter will never end,
within the house, signs of Spring!

Buds sheathed in rosy green,
warmed,
sipping the light of these longer days,
quenching their winter-deep thirst.

Blooms bursting joy,
ripe with sun dust,
petals translucent flesh.

And everywhere
Spring throbbing in the veins.
