Spring - Kay Ryan

It would be
good to shrug
out of winter
as cicadas do:
look: a crisp
freestanding you
and you walking
off, soft as

I saw this poem posted by a fellow poetry blogger, whose excellent poem a day blog you should follow, and could not resist posting it myself.  It's a crunchy image, tangible almost.  I think many of us would like to shed our shells right now, and to feel as new as the buds struggling to push up through the snow.  Spring is the renewal of the world, and if we choose, of ourselves.
