spring has sprung

she stood naked
beneath the crackling skies
as the torrent of words
rained down upon her
unafraid of drowning
as the hurricane
swept along her limbs

from her fingertips
little swollen buds grew
green in contrast
to the heavy snows of winter
still she smiles serenely
up at the clouds
acceptance written in her eyes

though he raged mindlessly
he gave pause
at the statuesque beauty
her verdant stance
bred hope in his heart that possibly the long winter
of his disconnect was ending

as she blossomed
he felt his bitterness fade
the lightning no longer flared throughout his mind
spring had sprung at long last
he could do nothing but stare
lost, in her understanding
