my forgotten blossom

inktuition blossom

They say the darkest hour is just before you wake,

and so with my front-garden tree:

just when I thought the fragile branches

had succumbed to the fiercest April showers

it blossomed so sweetly and suddenly,

reminding me, perhaps, that life truly goes on,

through seconds, minutes, and finite hours.
