A Vibrant Newness by Daginne Aignend and Jack Waller

A Vibrant Newness

 

The last vestige of winter lingers,

as we await impatiently

for spring to break forth

Releasing in its majesty new life,

as we recall from the deep recesses

Memories of a vibrant newness

brought in the rolling back of a stone.

 

Still ice crystals on my window

when Aurora shows her smiling face

The pale sun gingerly reveals herself,

shy little beams of her precious light

Inhaling the subtle fragrance of early

confident red and yellow tulips.

bravely defying Winter's last breath

 

The moon reflects in subtle hues,
a blanket of calm,
where turbulence is stilled.
An undeserved gift-
Respite from the maelstrom

of daily life, which we will

not allow being extinguished.

 

Warming my hands on my cup

of hot tea, I wonder how

the tulips sleep, set at rest

by the shimmering moonlight

Dreaming about another day

where they can spread their petals

flirting with the blushing Spring sun
