No Matter the Weather


Flowers close
as sudden snow disturbs
spring's return.
Alone together
we fail to notice.

Petals curl
struck by rain
mostly freezing.
Our attention turns to
what the icebox stores.

Newly closed
blossoms separate
as clouds break.
Sunshine strikes our glass
and desire returns.

As dusk settles
over the garden,
frost returns.
Our hunger captured
in this tiny space.

Whatever
season or weather,
find us here
playing the same game
with endless variety.
