Cold light of long dark cedes to soft warmth
Faint and sparse, hoarded by parklands swelling denizens
Bathing in hope among swathes of early blooms,
Enduring constants through eons of resurrected gods.
Winters sparse fractal symmetry softened now
Reclothed in verdant green and fleeting flowerings.
Creeping veil of verdant life resurgent
An indomitable tide drawing us out in its wake
No longer damp downcast shuffling units of muted grey
New growth of plants gifts hearts with youthful joy
Winters cloaks cast aside, new-clad in bright gossamer threads
A human chrysalis of form and spirit.
