A Pink Rose In February

A New View


More are scheduled,

days far below average,

far below expectation or

the ability to accept

that it is cold.


More surprises are due,

hours of delay everywhere

due to ice or winds

that refute the workings

of huge snow scrapers

and the competition

with slippery sheets

of frozen water.


Just one pink rose

in February to raise flagging

senses of gray days and chilly



A color so brilliant, so alive,

birds conceive of spring early

and head North.
