Moving Mountains, Lifting Fog

Labyrinthine
urban crystal mountains
sprawl
on frozen landscapes, endless 
with white, icy meandering 
escape tunnels of packed 
and mile-high-piled snow,
twinkling like stars 
evaporating, 
flake by extraordinary 
feathery flake
into cloaks of fog, obscuring haze 
lifting, listlessly 
rising 
toward the blue
into the warmth, into the bright 
into April’s succouring light,
tugging off gently 
winter’s weighty velvet curtain 
from dusty draped busts of vision
creativity, determination
a fresh new start
a snowball hydrangea
bud!
it’s Spring.
