On the Cusp of Berries

When enough time has passed
that the snow
is remembered only as footprints
in a freshly covered field,
when the split logs have melted away,
leaving imprints in the moist ground,
when the carpenter
and blueberry bees have returned,
kissing the redbud petals "Good morning,"
so have you.
