Day 201, premature spring

The Dogwood Tree
It's spring, she muses, and burst
forward in a lovely piroutte
suddenly, gracefully
all hope, all desire remembered.
She truly is a prima ballerina
all grace and confidence
Her arabesque is perfection!

A dainty little derriere appears
in the middle of winter.
the curtain thrown open
far too soon, she stands
and scuttles embarassed
withered to a humble plie
shivering in her little pink tutu.
