snow in the spring

yesterday it snowed a late spring snow,

and today i watched heavy, wet mounds fall

from the branches, already laden with green.

 

rather than sitting in silence,

the weight of cold and frozen memories

keeping them still,

exposed limbs blanketed and tucked away,

 

the branches let the snow slip off in shrugs,

wet leaves dancing,

sending showers down,

too full of life, too awake to sleep another day.
