Small stone 1-24-12

Flowers spring open
in their element
but ahead of their time
performing simply as nature dictates
so who is out of step
will the blooms die a late-early death
retreat
and have a chance to rebud
or are they doomed
by a premature debut
shining too brightly too soon

  1. I hear this is happening all over the place – mild weather and a false spring. Your questions are mine, too. Sometimes early bloomers do fizzle and fade before what should have been their rightful debut.
