Rite of Spring

Last year
Cherry trees in bloom
You arrived.
This year,
Blessed with eternal spring
Each benchmark celebrated.
In summer sun first smiles,
In falling leaves crawled,
In snowflakes babbled words
Understood only by these first blades
of green.
Tulips seeking sun through frozen earth
Like new teeth
Forever changing gummy grins.
