Open Leaves

tightly curled
into a bud
lingering, waiting,
until it should

could need raindrops
should need sun
would need warmth
to help open

a little bud
an unformed leaf
next year’s growth
inside the sheath

when will it open
its hard to say
this month or next?
Why, its unfurled today!

Welcome little leaf
we’ve waited so long
You’re the final sign of spring;
the tree’s shawl is finally on…

New Spring leaves
