number 1

start with a leaf
you think
you suppose

this is a simple thing
transparent when you hold it
against the sun
or covered in dew in the morning
or long dead and faded and frost layered

simple symbol of spring
make me wait
to see if they survived another winter
wonder if they will choose to thrive
this year
as if they have a choice
