Welcome Spring

A rustling in the cold soil
silent to all but birds and worms.
Shielded by what remains
of the once home,
a stretch and push
finally achieve light.

Green.
Glorious chartreuse!
New life cracks through
defiant of the chill air.
Hope peeks up from beneath
worn and tired leaves.

It’s a cue for the buds to form.
A suggestion that inspires the rest that follows.
Soon there will be warmth.
Shortly songs will fill the sunrise.
Sweet scents will hang upon the senses.
Spring is near!
