catching the sun
an exhilaration of color
profusion of petals
froth of ruffles
Even more beautiful
on to the lawn.
The bright blue sky bites with cold.
Buds hunker down waiting for a warmer sun
to shed their fuzzy jackets and unfurl petaled perfection.
The garden’s harvested bounty
carries a weary spirit towards spring
in the colors of dried petals and the promise of seeds.
