a taste of spring

a surge
an urge
to break through
a reach
for warmth
the earth
still covered
in a blanket of white cold

bold beauties
bursting of color
anticipating change

a time of unearthing
a time for discovery
your beauty needn’t hide
under layers
break out of
the winter’s doldrums
be no longer stagnant



let yourself sprout
a new season
all the more reason
to grow
into your own
