Born in May these many years ago,
amongst lily of the valley
and gaiety of tulips bright.
I am like the crocus
enjoying first rays of spring sun
in the midst of winter’s final stance.
Assertive, I push forward
first to appear,
even when slicked with chilling frost.
During coldest of times
I burrow in found comfort.
Your arms, ready to enfold me.
Like Mother Earth,
you are my home
in every season of the year.
Written for Tuesday Poetics at dVerse, the virtual pub for poets around the globe. Today Sanaa asks us to “become the embodiment of winter. Tell us what you feel during this season.” Crocus Me is where my muse took me!
NOTE: HOPE you will join us this Thursday, Jan 19, from 3 to 4 PM EST for OLN LIVE . . . OR . . . for the first time, on Saturday, Jan 21, from 10 to 11 AM EST.
