Crocus

In honor of National Poetry Month, I am sharing one of my wife’s poems. I would love to have others share their own poetry, too.

Crocus

The lovely color of the crocus

stirs me from sleep.

Petals chill from frosty winds as

snowdrifts shade early sunshine.

Rain arrives and awakens us,

Daffodils bud, thick with gold.

Hues of brightness christen others,

Still quiet in their beds.
