Early Spring

A Cold gray day in March,
counting heartbeats until spring.
Dormant trees nod to a cold breeze,
that whispers in return.
Searching fervently for warmth.
Dreaming of rebirth.
Slivers of blue sky
among dense white clouds.
Evening comes too soon.
Sunset wraps around night
like a shawl around cold shoulders,
as April waits her turn.
