Burst of Life

burst of life
cracking bark
life’s move forward

earth’s veins
humming chirpily
readying for furious activity

winters overstay
unwelcome guest- may you
leave in peace, not as pest

pleasure pain
life’s refrains
notes high, low

sickle moon cuts
heart of night dark
sun scythe’s moon

survival is name of game
weak may be meek, yet
are never quite beat

cheery cherry blossom
blossoms despite frost
toothless frost rendered speechless
