Barely Spring

barely spring – the daffodils
nod in the cold sun and
crabapple trees burst into pink bloom –
cold and rain forecasted for tomorrow –
barely spring, it is expected

    I love crabapples! The fruit as well as the tree. I remember there were loads of crabapples around the children’s playground where we went in Paris. Gypsies used to pick the fruit and the Parisian parents would tut tut saying it was poisonous. I’d have picked them too if it hadn’t meant climbing a wall and scaling the wire fence at the top.
