THE LONGEST WINTER by Amy Hilgendorf

The shock of green startles me awake
To realize
The longest winter is over.

These streets were paved with ice.
Seemingly unnavigable,
Promising hurt if you dared.

But now my eyes pop
From what meets me here.
Through frozen cracks,
Warmth, energy, color, life,
Everywhere I look.

From dark and dry branches
Stretch little green fingers
Reaching to touch the sky.
Cold, damp winds
Softened to sweet, soft whispers.

I watch each day.
The growth, the beauty, the nature love.

A blossom flows gently from a tree,
Like a gemstone had sprouted wings,
On an adventure to a world brand new.
