Viable: A Winter Bulb

purple and yellow bulbs on hill march

Blooming bulb

viable in the late winter

opening to show its beauty

vibrant color with splendor


Against the odds

it puts on a show

deep purple leaves

a small yellow spot to glow


My soul is lifted

at this spectacular site

a promise of days to come

a spiritual delight


Other blooms come

to join the renewal of life

a brief moment in time

relief from winter’s strife


Speaking a gentle story

of a small universe within

a moment of pure joy

before the cold wins


A small bird lands

encouraged by the promise of spring

searching for food

around each petals ring


Meditation ends

the new day has begun

a joyful moment of beauty

another anthem sung
