Unfolding Lilac

Sun in Gemini

And then one day there will unfold

Before delighted gaze

A purple ring where thickest mud

Had tempered walks on winter days


Where sliding boots had struggled

To cross the sodden land

Our eyes now look with wonder

To gaze on colour’s gentle hand


Time and tide’s persistence

Their essence of ascent

From sodden bulb to flower’s joy

A hidden rite of innocence


Directed upwards, called to seek

The calling power’s face

As cheek by mote they flex and float

To form the softest carapace


Awake and break dark winter’s chains

Cast off the inner gloom

And breathe the air with lilac stare

Then give the light its living room
