Photos and poetry 21 : Snowdrops

I am currently doing my 2nd 366, it’s another leap year; posting ( not taking!) at least 1 photo every day.

There will certainly be variety

This is number 29.

Caught in the light

Snowdrops

Do you know what I was, how I lived? You know
what despair is; then
winter should have meaning for you.

I did not expect to survive,
earth suppressing me. I didn’t expect
to waken again, to feel
in damp earth my body
able to respond again, remembering
after so long how to open again
in the cold light
of earliest spring–

afraid, yes, but among you again
crying yes risk joy

in the raw wind of the new world.
