Mid-March news


by Kevin T McEneaney

A dusting of snow to remind us all

that bountiful Spring has not yet arrived

as tall trees skyward splay sleeves of white lace,

chipmunks and squirrels dot-dot their footprints

on lightly dusted gray patio slates

while miniature flecks of snow wander

in fickle breeze when you certainly know

this white mirage schedules a finale

of bone-shivering winter with cruel nights

that linger longer than contemplation

permits while hauling armloads of split wood

to placate said woodstove while one dozes

in dreams of what white-blue skies might arrive

when yellow crocus calls to morning light.
