Spring melting

Like light
through snow-laden branches
the joy comes,
slowly at first,
a sparkle here,
a warmth there,
some golden glow begins
to pluck away cool strands
of fading dark,
and soon the slightest breeze
will dislodge the fragile web of winter,
dropping it down through thin limbs
like a net, to capture
unsuspecting crocuses below.
