Sunshine in its purest form
Dressed in bridal innocence,
Emerald carpet strewn with pearls
Waves in holy reverence.
I, an honoured guest in state,
Watch as vows of love are sworn;
Gladdened by this gloried glimpse,
Spring pronounces hope reborn.
Without warning culverts swell with hope,
Meltwaters surge where ice and snow once reigned absolute.
All vestiges of Winter succumb to its vortex;
What is annihilates what has been,
Washes every trace of despair downstream.
Creeks crucify the cold,
Flotsam crosses carried on rippled muscles
As they re-enact the Passion.
Breaking from its tomb once again.
