Witnessing Something Soon to Come

The shroud of snow and ice

lifts just enough for more shades

of brown.  There is a fifth season:

The season of snow and mud.  Patterns thin

in delicate layers of fractured

ice show the earth’s color

underneath.  An array of future hues

is hinted in dirty white.  Birds sing the gray

away while rays from the sky cause the filthy drip

down sewage drains.  All will flush clean.  Fresh life

exhales.  Another revolution of the planet

promises not all is lost in the whiteouts plaguing

past weeks.  The ground will soon begin

to rupture in a rapture of crocus.
