PURPLISH

Something in the air has changed. There’s the slightest hint of spring; the animal in us can sense it. It’s hard to explain. But I went for a walk yesterday and saw the crocuses in the park –– it’s certainly on the horizon.

Purplish

The crocuses
Enlivened the mud

Before the squirrels
Came to eat them –

Black eyes, grey fur,
Purplish whiskers.
