The Longest Week



The moon is obscured by the clouds that scatter spring rains

All day all

of last night



Yet I walk tall today feeling

Sexy and blessed

Sleepy earth awakens, is flooded, is nourished

Brazenly she reveals her story book colors

That will eventually bear fruit



There is no turning back of spring

Not even a killing frost

Nothing can justify

intentionally

Destroying the gift



The forest flower folds unto itself for protection

Standing delicately, it faces inward

From the rude chill of the damp night air

It opens early to the sunís warmth

without us seeing

The birthing tight bud

Becoming a fully opened flower

That could not be seen for what it is

Until it appeared

Regardless of what anyone else wanted

This is really sensual and fragrant, the images totally put me in the post-rain spongy walking terrain near your house. i loved these lines in particular:



The moon is obscured by the clouds that scatter spring rains

All day all

of last night



Not even a killing frost

Nothing can justify

intentionally

Destroying the gift



The forest flower folds unto itself for protection

it faces inward

From the rude chill of the damp night air

It opens early to the sunís warmth

The birthing tight bud


That could not be seen for what it is

Until it appeared

Regardless of what anyone else wanted
