A waning sun opens

a dialogue with strangers,

unlocking icy jaws.

The wet road splashing

with pale whispers.


We line our conversation

with wind-curled black hedgerows,

tangled with best intentions.


A stone scuffed tower

rises above the crusted snow

a moment melting through.


Dogwoods grace the tone,

rosy exclamations

in the drained scene.


Instinctive, we push up

sprouting tendrils

from beneath shelves of hard frost.


Nosing our way up

like a white blush of snowdrops

from the thawing earth.

Spring flourishing between us.
