let spring bring growth
like allowing the sap to rise
and my blood to thunder quick
may the dragonswing leaf unfurl
dark, fragile, impossibly strong
let it be so
please forgive the magnolia,
the apple and cherry, for bursting forth
the grass arduously pining through every sidewalk crack,
my skin, still present after all these months
tumult has a clanging need to be heard
and I've never been good at waiting
