Crocus

 


December 9, 1987


Stirrings.
Slightest warmings.
Growing.
Life.


Clothed in darkness,
Nestled in moistness,
Stirrings of life
'Herald the spring.


Then bursting
To bask in sunshine!
Reveling
In the newborn season.


Purple, golden,
Purest white,
Tiny petals
Among the leaves.


But too early!
A late snow falls
To smother hope,
To crush
The crocus.
