19.03.18 Poems for Gnomes

The Winnowed Approach

of tulips.
of daffodils.
they compete
with bare-knuckled weather.
they prepare
against the weight of snow,
against stem-breaking frost,
against long-tooth grey,
and still spring promises
an approach. comes,
day upon day,
and speaks to us
in four season languages,
wearing
its winnowed face.
