April 15th and snow

Not Yet Buried

A blank’t of snow

The earth still sleeps

And condensation tears on window’s pane

Ice blue

Mute grey- the sky

Why spring’s delay?

For whom is winter’s freeze still held?

A hibernating pause-

Tis ‘t grief?

That stays this tomb-like cool?

What root or bulb o’ flower

Still needs be forced

By frost?

Then do!

Get on with dying- death!

And burst this shell!

The new, the green must come.

                                                                                                             John 12: 24 "Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground,

dead to the world,

it is never any more than a grain of wheat.

But if it is buried,

it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over.
