Cold Snap

The Jonquils bloomed overnight.
Purple crocus popped through
the hard crust above them. 
Hyacinth buds nestled in the thick
green arms holding snug,
ready to burst into color.

“28 degrees tonight! 
Back to 47 by noon tomorrow.”
unwelcome news 
from the meteorologist.
A cold snap designed to kill
the impatient fledglings 
showing their pretty faces
in early spring.

Is this the “Blackberry Winter”
Grandad talked about long ago?
Check the blackberry vines, Hon.
Are they blooming?
If the answer is yes, here we are
“smack dab” in the middle of
Blackberry Winter, like
walking backward in the rain.
