Winter’s shroud
Urges meditation
Adornment so scant    only
Heaven’s light to cheer the lonely

In springtime though
Peeping buds awaken
Tiny origins thrust
Ease one’s contemplation

Tulips germinate
Sans nature’s later flow
And mind’s eye gravitates
To roiling roots below

Spring’s full blown riot
Must pose eyeful question
But a moment chime    perhaps
Soul’s true direction

Is such splendid array
A vein traveling invitation
To some hidden house
Of God’s creation?

Alas    belittling mortal speculation
Winter’s origin    winter’s shroud –
She sleeps    sleeps as needed
By all of nature’s crowd

    This is so good and though I don't say it often, is one I wish I could have written. Beguiling in form, content and message, smooth and compelling in rhyme. The final stanza is masterful.

    You are so DEEP in this one, Daver. And I think you and I are both craving the spring!! It won't stop snowing here and I want to GET OUT OF HERE!! (see a movie!!!)

    Very, very nice. It's "spring" here - 74 today, but I know it won't last.
