23 March – Reawakening

It seems like Honeysuckle comes back to life overnight
as hundreds of green leaf butterflies suddenly alight
then open their wings to shape shift again,
transmorphing into water lilies in a masquerading game.
Her trails interweave with settled Ivy’s evergreens,
shining fresh growth green with an almost glowing gleam.
I greet her reawakening with gently bubbling joy
anticipating the pinks and perfumes she will soon deploy.
