Butterfly blooms

 Trees begin to bloom
as the icy hands of
winter melt away
a butterfly
floats on the wings
of rebirth

    The imagery in this poem is awesome! I love the contrast of winter's hands with a butterfly's wings. Good luck in the contest :)

    very pretty. And if you make it three lines, you will have perhaps the rebirth poem for Debs!!
