Life Begins With the Thaw

Emerging from the cryogenic chamber of winter’s wonderland
Leaving behind the unique intricate weave of snowflakes
Glacial mountain tops and iced over ponds
Let the water trickle and run once more
To revive the buried shoots beneath the hard ground
Welcome twittering robin’s red breast in the morning once more
Waiting for the turning of the soil to feast on that below
The pale hibernated drawn human faces emerge from their houses
To bask in the subtle warmth of the suns heat returned
Live life to its blossomed fullest in these harsh territories
As soon the beautiful emerald green of spring thaw
