Heads up:

tiny shoots

break earth’s shell

spring up

from winter’s

bed of dreams

showing us

how to make

a comeback

every time.

One response to Poem: “Spring Thaw” By Maureen Doallas [Vol. 4, #6]

  1. What I love about this poem is the playful use of language from “Heads up” to the idea of “making a comeback.” Maureen takes the beauty and implicit wisdom of nature and gives it the voice of our contemporary culture.
