I’ve been reading an astonishing amount of new poets lately. And obsessing about them. And yesterday, when the words of Tyler Knott Gregson invaded my sleep and buzzed around in my head, an idea sprung forth. Inspired in equal parts by him and the bountiful nature.

The frozen,
barren branches

for the kiss of spring
to awaken new buds
and stretch its arms wide open.

As I wait for your kiss
to awaken feelings
left untapped,
unfelt, unspoken.
