As the choir sang
In my personal sanctuary
I heard the last bits of the rains of yesterday
Drip from the roof deck above.
Tiny bits of pollen in the air
Caused an itch
Or the occasional twitch,
But brought as well a reminder
Of the coming of spring.
It won’t be long, now.

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day
It looked and felt like spring!
Only the bare branches betrayed
What the calendar on my wall tells me.
A knowledge of all that is to come
Heals my soul.
