Wishful Thinking

In a month’s time,
this wind will be put to good use
transporting seeds.
Dazzled by the wealth of sunshine,
the frozen assets
of these fields, with renewed fertility,
accumulate interest.
Tonight’s gloved snowfall replaced
by a downpour’s
slammed fist asserting dominance.
When the chisel
of lengthening daylight penetrates,
patient roots shall
unfold to probe into receptive mud.

Wishful thinking –
a mere seedling so long cultivated –
will muscle aside
winter’s claim to eminent domain
in thirty days time.
