Springtide - NaPoWriMo
The cold of spring almost feels colder
After the warming vernal season has made me bolder
About stepping out with exposed skin
Thinking it will be temperate again.
Only to find all grey and chill
Even the dandelions wrapped up and hiding until
The afternoon sun finally works up some heat
That most excuisite springtide treat
Which yet reminds me of April being just a start
Just one first tentative part
In the cyclic, rhythmic, spinning dance
Of this timeless universal romance.
