March is not spring

March is not the spring
promised in seed catalogs
other places

here, it is the unbloomed, precrocus want
of mud under ice

a softening, finally naked
but still waiting

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
