My garden is beginning to bloom again
With sprouts of celery green bursting forth
Upward through the ground
Of rock and clay in covered red.
Shades of weathered brown were all around,
Chocolate and cocoa colors
Muffin tops of snow cakes swallowed yesterday.
Showers fell from sky of royal blue above
Weeping and seeping
Opening a seasoned curtain of spring splendor.
Forces of nature pushed them from far below
“Up, up, up, it’s time for you to go…”
Soon blossoms of buttercup yellow
Will open mouths to say, “Hello.”
