“Waiting for Spring”

in your mind
the flowers bloom
in your heart
the greenbelt beckons
in your soul
you know
you know
it willbe here soon
the fields of color
the hours of hiking
the days spent outdoors
outnumbering the days spent in spring
spring
when Texas shows off
when the landscape is as beautiful as the sky
and when your heart is so full
of love
(and pollen)
you can only sigh
and wonder
how can we get spring here sooner
and make it stay
longer?
why is not currently
springtime outside
why
why
why
