Spring carries surprise on its back,

Secrets  buried by snow and frost unearthed

Left stranded on beds of mud and decaying leaves.

Debris from lives frozen and unthawed-

Skeletons and litter in equal measure.

And still there are the other surprises-

Life carried to places unexpected

And unrecognized

A lone shoot on the hilltop or

A patch of daffodils

Deep between the trees.

Spring is an odd grab bag of strange lives and deaths.

For more of the unexpected, my fantasy novel, The Guests of Honor, is available here. Its sequel, With Honor Intact, can be found here.
