Vernal equinox

Written by: Michael Dom

Asterisms flicker
one sleek obsidian night;
solstice slips away

Snowdrop shoots nosing
petals into bitter winds;
first whispers of spring

Sparkling laughter runs
among the pebbles and reeds;
melt-water music

Bright blue, wet green days
wash away winters lather;
vernal equinox.
