January  by  Teri H Hoover


 

A January death between them,
fearless lilac buds bask in the sun
under a blanket of blue skies and snow.

  4. The tenacity of new life pushing through adverse conditions, and taking advantage of sunlight while it can is amazing. I hope these buds stay safe and can grow to flowers.
