Consider yourself duly warned

Spring Looms on the Horizon

Moisture clings to my skin

latching onto every square-inch

until all of me is covered and drenched

in honeysuckle-sucking days of Lent

Spring looms on the horizon

Hot and sultry with suffocating breath

that smells of young violets

Humidity pulls at the ends of my curls

like a game of Tug of War

Dew-speckled grass grown above my kneecaps

tickles and teases and itches for play

as wisteria blooms and stretches across the archway

Rain raps on the roof and the sizzling pavement

turning to mist that creates fog-infested riverbanks

April has cast her wretched love spell once more

Consider yourself duly warned
