First Day of Spring
March 18, 2020
Window sills maintain collections
Hold timid living treasures
In Celadon -green ceramic pots
Succulents whispering across the rims
Pretend to sprout prickly wings
Each Aloe Vera wants a gentle flight
Regardless of age or size
Infused in sunshine of changing seasons
Nourished sparingly with tepid water
Given rest during lengthy winter vacation
Succulents anticipate juicy arrival of Summer.
