Snowmelt

Carrying ancient secrets

snowmelt spills over granite

Mother Nature’s resolve
smoothing sharp edges

timeworn surfaces
with long-held secrets
released into frigid water

the rushing stream
flowing and coursing

ancient secrets carried
downstream
splashing the face of Spring

waking her

ancient secrets
nourishing wildflowers

poppies, lupine, milkweed

ancient secrets
creating a beautiful landscape

ancient secrets
brought to life by snowmelt
