Green Shoot

Image result for green shoot



Spring is the poet's season!




Ted Kooser, from 'Winter Morning Walks':



The sky a pale yellow this morning,
like the skin of an onion,
and here at the center,
under layer upon layer of brooding
and ferment, a poet, 
and cupped in his hands, the green shoot
of one word.
