I catch glimpses of green from beneath
the rough casings of brown.
Green, showing its affinity
for the bright blue of the sky above
and the already verdant ground below
blanketed by warm and delicious yellow light.
The snow from the early morning
has already melted away
and gone to feed the aching thirst
of those green, green, green,
velvet to the touch, newborns
peeking out and teasing my eyes and heart
with a hope of what’s coming.
Life from death –
is the great mystery of my mind today –
how regardless of circumstance
there is a bubbling inside of me
urging itself to uncover from within,
shedding its winter-case
and entreating all to join in the wonder.
Death no more to hold them in its grasp –
an echo of a greater Truth
My heart is at peace and energy.
