Can't wait for spring!
Spring simmers beneath the snow
like subterranean hot springs.
Earth shivers, shoots daffodil spikes
through late winter’s crumbling crust.

New life is ready to blow,
shower the valley
with frothy white geysers
of apple blossoms.

For now,
spring simmers beneath the snow,
but in the bones of my feet
I feel the pressure
building.
