crocus


A crocus blooms:
a miracle considering
winter rock hard ground
unyielding
dead
but the flower finds
its weaknesses
snaking sneakily through till
AHA!
sunlight warms and it begins
eternal drama has unfolded
yet again

Seasons
always seasons
but I never seem
to learn
succumbing to winter
disbelieving in spring
and here again
a crocus blooms

A miracle
dependable
surprise
