snow apple

a greenness in the air,
the heaps of frozen snow sagging
in the sun’s melt,
mud replacing ice on the slates outside my door

and everywhere,
poking through winter’s white blanket,
sodden leaves, forgotten stones
and bits of paper, the evidence of life
dropped carelessly in the dark
of stormclouded nights

i stepped carefully so as not to squish
in the newly-revealed underbelly of my world
and then beheld, as perfect as the day it ripened,
an apple, untouched by the ravages of cold
by virtue of nature’s blanket now vanished

it was a fresh reminder that a newness,
a different season comes,
one gentler and more welcoming than winter

but all i could think was
how will i cope, alone, with passionate spring,
when winter gives such credence to despair
