New Growth - Poem by valerie jaeger

they say nothing can live
in the frost-bound coldness
of december, but here,
unfolding despite this bitter air:
the fresh feel
of warm hands under mine.
the glass-edged leaves
beneath our feet melt into
liquid leather softness,
of what grows here
in december.

    This is breathtaking Valerie. I must say you have an innate whimsical style. I love it. Keep it up.
