Purple Sun day









The crocus are
blooming

Squinting,
then unfurling
into the shy slant
of spring's pale
lemon sky.
Flocks of light blue
breezes migrating
from the south gently
mingle with warming
rays and I am
shivering from chill,
warmth, both at once.
My paper face
tilts, like purple crocus
to the western horizon.
Together,
flower and I, awaken
to the moment, fill
yawning lungs,
ready hearts with fragile
sunshine.
