Spring's Fragile Kiss




Lipid landscape
melts in quicksilver dreams
white birches flirt with the wind
planting spring's fragile kiss
 tender wisps of papery hope
outline feathers' dance

Sun jeweled memories poke through the white sieve
Wisps of tucked green stars lean
their whispers of tortum

An angel
trumpets the news
party dresses of satin and buttery velvet
with sunny petticoats
will be the first to arrive.

Other guest wait, for their invitation.
Soon all will dance in wind's waltz
vibrant ruffled gowns will turn heads as
golden curls twirl

large sunny cups wait for ceremonial high tea 
Madame de la Sabliere  is jealous
the Ice Follies have come to town
