Waiting Springs

Although magnolias crescendo into space

from bareness,  budded flowerings of magenta

and whiteness like a bridal flurry down the street

 

and prunus send confetti blossoms

to manicure the edge of winter’s nippy

tail blowing determinedly from the south,

 

there is curiosity in the aisles, hesitant

anticipation, plane trees, tallow, jasmine,

roses, all quiet, as waiting springs

 

an overture
