Why does it
seem strange
that flowers
would be the first
to notice spring?

Rain or sleet or snow?
Sometimes even flowers can
Become quite confused.
White shafts of bristle
Prickle in clumps at the base
Where truffles cluster.
Alfalfa sneezes
Its pollen calling card, deep
Inside a sink hole.
The scorched earth resists
Becoming a sponge until
Moisture stays steady.
All kinds of wild things
Swell alongside the suture
That ice cycles thaw.
Where is the future?
Not even a handful of
Thistles can tell you.
