Inspiration piece

The seeds sleep

Closeted in cold, damp soil

Recovering strength sapped by red-hot days

Of summer sun snorting their fragrance, licking their petals

Shrinking and sanctioning their flowery beauty

Pushing them to withered end

They sleep—winter cold, fresh, deep washed

     in teeming rains and snows

Until a warming wiggles them free and slowly

Their green slim arms reaching

They begin spring dancing, growing,

   smothering their coughing, sneezing

And blowing out renewed flowers, haughty and headstrong

Faces colorful and swaying into summer

The music of their brush toned petals

    stroking the air,

      bowing in the wind

Gracing the universe.
