Finding Beauty

 

 

Only northerners

would find beauty in this clump of simple flowers

these dull yellow crocuses reaching four inches

above dead brown ground

 

Lovers of winter snow

stop to smile

when crocuses lay open

their petals to the harsh spring light

 

It is the way we are wired

we lucky enough to witness

winter give way to spring

and small flowers thrive on water

from melting snow
