quince

eyes blink
unbelieving, pink flutters
among winter thorns
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
last year's bounty
dying, hope of harvest passed
nearby, new bloom

Well done.

quiet...eastern NC. we've been hovering near 70 off & on all winter, so though the quince blooms are early, it's not a surprise.
