Inexorably, Spring Slowly Comes

Spring slowly comesThis year, approach of Spring has been slow,
Snow after falling snow resisting,
Yet inexorably it comes, this tilting sphere,
Slant of Sun finding warmer bliss,
Melting last piles of winter
Hiding inside cold shadows.
Greening wholeness is portal
Where heat of summer is soon to come,
Glory rising from tender Earth.
Now the snow releases streaming water,
Reveals debris that was covered since October,
Dead leaves brought down by wind and storm,
Frozen under piles of snow through months
When light was dim and poor.
What was caught is now released.
Listen carefully and you’ll hear it in the breeze,
Sweeping across the lake and hills
Like a slow emerging understanding, profoundly rooted,
Frees the blind heart to see afresh,
Germinating deep under crust of Earth.
