all winter wanting

to do something color-splashed
important as love, a layered thing
to be peeled and savored, sparkling

within, remembered like first spring sun
on your skin, green finger-strong snapping
of marigold heads, spilled apart and all

feathered seeds teased out, cast on
to wind or soil or sand
