March Equinox

by g emil reutter

Night sky weighty
super moon dim
obscured by pigskin
clouds. Incessant
rain marinates spring
bulbs, stems rise
from scruffy mulch
purple hue of crocus
rise up adjacent to
unadorned rose bush
folded stalks of
iris. Stark branches
of blueberry, lilac
burning bush
unruffled await their
turn as forsythia buds
clusters of yet bloomed
blue bells prepare for
arrival of humming
birds. All of this under
the weighty dim sky
of transition from
grim twilight of winter
to March equinox
assurance of existence
and rebirth.
