Persistent Spring ll




Persistent Spring    ll                                                       

Outside, mid-winter wraps
the world in ice.
Inside, on my window sill,
signs of Spring.

Buds sheathed in green
sipping the light
of longer days
to quench
their winter thirst.

Blooms bursting joy
ripe with sun dust
translucent flesh
and everywhere—

Spring throbs in the veins.



Notes:
This is a version of a poem I wrote last year; see my blog entry of February 20, 2011.  And, I welcome feedback. 
Since today marks the beginning of Spring, the poem seems appropriate.

Photo is mine.

It does throb in the veins! I love the ambiguousness of this statement. Very nice images throughout.
