Celebrants

Hummingbirds whirr between salvia bushes,
dodge darting bat silhouettes
during lavender twilight.
Camouflaged tree frogs
chorus a rousing bass beatbox.

In awakening flower beds,
purple crocus erupt.
Blind narcissus brandish green daggers.
Calla lilies unfurl pure coifs,
virginal nuns beside ruddy vinca.

Sap rises, restores wizened limbs.
Plum tree buds crown,
explode into white and pink blossoms.
Persephone resurrects.
Entombed daffodils emerge,
flaunt yellow trumpets.
