Spring Thaw in the Marsh, Margaret Mair, original art

The trees are thirsty
But not for this.
As winter ends
Warming snow melts
Into floods of water,
Submerging roots,
Encircling trunks.
A small wind
Kisses the water’s
Misted sunrise surface
Into rainbow ripples
Running lightly over
Drowned green grass.
Trees and soil
Tremble on the edge
Of Spring growth
Waiting for days
Of sun and warmth
To give them
Dry, breathing soil,
Lusting for
Nature’s invitation
To bud and blossom,
To leaf and branch out
Into warm Summer’s
Greener splendor.
And we
Dreaming of a world
Cocooned in their
Deep green love
Wait with them.
