Silver mist is rising in the valley,
the dark earth sleeps.
Trees stand brown and bare like phantoms
their roots go deep
grasp rock, drink water. Wait for spring

when dreaming leaves unfurl from buds
awake and burning.
This season is not death, but rest.
The sun's returning,
it's worth the wait, for blossoming.
