First Week

by the first week of march, buds and blossoms had already arrived in vancouver, early ambassadors of spring.

spring. a season. the axil tilt of the earth is leaning toward the sun, as daylight hours grow and stretch and increase. i notice it already – it’s not light out when i leave work, but there is a stripe of light blue along the horizon. “The hemisphere begins to warm significantly, causing new plant growth to spring forth, giving the season its name.”

spring. an object used to store mechanical energy.
spring. a natural source of water.
spring. a town in texas.

mostly i am considering the first. seeds planted and the winter thaw revealing new life in unexpected or forgtotten places. i welcome it.
