Be still and breathe

Be still,
and breathe
the soft winter air.
Inhale the scent
of awakening,
the buds that lie
just below the surface
waiting to be born;
see how in death
the grasses,
ready to lie down
to protect new life,
glow with anticipation.
as the tree, its tongue outstretched,
sips delicately at the nectar of fog.
