Winter White

Wisconsin, end of winter
world lays white horizon
to horizon, earth, sky,
Trees' black skeletons show
no promise of bud or leaf.
Color migrated with the warblers.
I must take it on faith snow
will melt, grass push up,
blossoms burst, color return.

  1. Oh my, powerful, visual metaphor.

  2. I can feel this scene and shiver a bit from it. This is such a wonderful way to describe it and the fact that there are times when you just have to have faith that spring will come.
