Written for @dVersePoets at OpenLinkNight this last Tuesday of January . . .
nestled days gone by
snowdrops fall and fall again
days grow longer and longer
now at the half-way mark
turns toward spring
kindness of spirit
and lasting patience
at the feet of my home’s hearth
for flowers to bloom
pushing out from the frozen dark ground
from this winter’s barren soil
a simple Irish wish
a spark for my spirit to do the same
even on the harshest winter day!
