Soon, Green (for OSI)

Today in the notch, despite the mere scrim
of a late March snow, rainy flakes barely frozen,
falling, liquefied, through an early morning
mountain air,
                    even the casual eye could catch
(captured in a momentary parting of fog)
the small grey buds of the red maple,
the low spark, purple flame of crocus.
