First Days of Spring

Spring is coming
With little steps:
Forty-nine violets in a pot;
A patch of sun on a worn bedspread;
Green buds, tightly furled.
My thoughts are unfurling too:
Stretching into the sun;
Counting violets;
And sorting thought the archive of words
For seeds to plant
In the rich dark soil
Watered by a warming rain.
