In the longer growing seasons

in an arid world

the days without shadow

are too few

winter ends in springtime temperatures

surrounded by snowy ridges

as bees set themselves

to their tasks with new blooms

and the garden brings us food

weeks of winter

gone in a flash

celebrated in their sudden cold

as we ready ourselves

for the fiery heat

hiding right around the corner

in only weeks – Caroline A. Slee

Weeks of Winter
