The cruellest month

 

There is no tease to February

Long nights, Short days,

Deep grey clouds, blanket the sky

Icy cold winds, bringing snow and hail

Sun is hidden, almost forgotten

Snowdrops fight to emerge

From the hard dark ground

Icy air hangs, still no movement

Warmth had long been forgotten.

February makes no apologies

It does not promise warmth or light

It does not promise bursting flowers

It does promise the hopes of spring

February may be the cruellest month

but its full of honesty.

Honesty

honesty

Honesty, your fragrant purple flowers

Oval translucent seed heads

Gleam with eerie silver light.

You seed yourself freely.

.

Honesty you are of moral character

Positive, truthful and trustworthy

You are yourself

Living your life freely

.

Dare to be honest

Grow like honesty

Old fashioned charm

Thrive and be free
