Debutantes

They come first,
debutantes
in palest shades
of pink.

Then,
the sturdy stalks
of rhododendron bushes
flash
yellow alarms.
Along the highway.
Where we walk.
Briefly unveiled,
soon
growing green.

Citrus green
fledgling buds
poke out
against the blue
cloudless sky
while
dandelion roots
plunge like pipelines
to middle earth.

Willows, lime,
begin to droop
their delicate leaves
like butterflies
into spring.
