"Pieces of April"

Moss oozing from the cracks
In the brick of front steps -
New little universes.

Sprouts and buds drenched
In warm spring showers -
Embryonic new life.

Aroma of fresh earth permeating
From gardens and flower beds -
Perfume of promise.

Industrious colonies of insects
Thawed out of hibernation
In new generations.

Persistent chirping of the birds
Nesting in the roof gutters -
Flight for life.

Wonderful new life, miraculous rebirth
From successful cryogenics -
April is Genesis.

Spring: intoxicating and awesomely holy
Flourishing revitalization -
Pieces of April.
