Lover's Season

Lovers must wait for spring
for the warm sap
and green lithe
to return to their souls

Spores cling
seedpods anxious to burst
and you catch the hint 
of your mate on the bluster
before the clear blood of rain 
drips it fresh and new

On your lover's body
thoughts are written:
no longer of denying cold
but of rejoicing the warmth

April nights bring no stars for wishing
The time for wishing is over
the vivid green inhibition of spring
is here
