Eternal Spring

O temporary tomb,

O momentary mask,

you may have won the battle,

but you won’t have the last laugh.

Icy tentacles over the years

have but strengthened resolve

and built up resistance;

patience will finish its work

as Faith trumps treason.

Hope hangs onto higher hearth,

for true love conquers even death,

and ushers in

eternal spring…

Mardi Gras Costume

Mardi Gras  costume and mask over face,

Twirling of ribbons and finding of place,

Stepping in time to the autumnal beat,

 Outlandish fall foliage parades down the street.
