A Promise

The clouds held

dirt from yesterday,

dimming the blue

to a dingy gray

that met me

after the sun

rose somewhere

behind the murkiness,

but my eyes fell

on the blooming

pear tree, the simple,

life-lit green, 

white cups holding

a spray of pink,

a promise, a budding

of spring.
