Spring Poem

Today, spring is hot and thick,
felt on the fingertips like oil
slick between your pads โ€”
And promise blows through trees
drunk on new leaves and green,
green growth that almost glowsโ€”

We forget what year it is
and how old our bodies are,
remembering every other spring,
a bounty of birth potential
glimpsed in fluffy bunnies, fuzzy chicks
making us want to gambol & skip…

Flying down the freeway again,
the wind is no less harsh
but my mein is that much more mellow
My face heats and I am awash
in hope for a future more bright.
