I Do Not Need Spring

I do not need spring

to bring me relief

from barrenness of green,

for beauty

I can still see

in the bleak;


all seasons


live in me,

as mixed up

as this year’s weather

has proven

to be.


I do not deny, though,

that I am happy to greet

the buds of pink

popping up so soothingly,

as if showering

my healing spirit

with my favorite

floral coloring.

You spoil me,

dear Spring.


I stop my feet

and indulge in

the thought retreat,

still my camera,

and with the bees,

capture the sweet

intricacies hidden in

the blushes of

the softest of
