Coaxing spring.



take off my pristine white gloves
you will find the grind of soil
trapped under my nails
evidence of coaxing spring from the earth
the unwilling participant
sleeping yet promising much
stretch soon my beauty
and give me your all.

  3. White gloves can hide so much. I hope there is no shame at the evidence those nails reveal. Hard toil and all that coaxing deserve an early Spring!
