March in its mercurial mood...

March and the call of winter...

trees barren of leaves
budding green in a blanket of snow
sun brilliant in the lambent sky
the calm of a cold cold winter day

March being March in its mercurial mood

holds to the call of winter
summoned be the cold, high winds, and snow angels
crystals of light to come forth in winter’s mood
and so the storm before the gateway to spring.
