Waiting for April
fresh blossom ready to bloom
blue skies and long days
A bright wintry path
leading who knows where, to spring?
pause and be mindful
Julia has gone for a seasonal prompt this week with ‘and winter will bring . . .’
I didn’t think I would make it, but as I’m babysitting this evening, the late night is an opportunity, so here is
And winter will bring enduring moon
regal rotund shining for hours through the six a.m. alarm
through sharp ice sky rolling to the west
as dawn ripples from the east.
And winter will bring ice
crunching crystals on grass shooting veneer onto pond
silvered birch a forest of icycled chandeliers.
And winter will bring
spiralling north wind on street corners
whipping around limbs and petrifying ears.
And winter will bring light precious from low sky sun
concentrated through window an illusion of warmth
no substance and stunted shadows.
And winter will bring thrust from the underworld
Galanthus to herald the spring.
