Blood Red Buds


blood red buds begin
shivering in the cold light of
tomorrows promise



The birds are outside singing like it is already spring, don't they feel the cold?

  3. Birds will sing even in the rain. They sing because they have a song, and that is a wonderful thing. You might say it's like faith.

  11. This made me think about how much of spring is still chilly, and promise can come forth from cold.
