imbolc (well capricious)

season given to dangerous

fluctuations;  spasms

of the heart – violets get bold

emerging from hibernation

 

throwing snowballs

jasmine runs barefoot

daring erect buds, lifting

her skirts, whispering tales

 

of thawings and giggling

with magnolia and wattle flirting with the sun

by now everyone has heard

the rumors of winter’s demise

 

and has begun planting impossible

gardens;  from their tangled

bower pan and bridhe toast

the holy victory and begin to dance
