In the northern highlands
it's called the breakup,
the thawing of the land

snow and ice recede
replaced by mud and flood

the once peaceful
winter landscape
turns bleak and brown

the churning of icy waters
and dirt prepare the land
for the season ahead

the great "breakthrough"

the rise of the green
the rebirth of life
the coming of spring

the people of the highlands
rejoice!
plant seeds
tend gardens
and revel in having
survived the breakup

  1. I loved this. Forever a four-season girl, I find so much about transition can be transferred to personal situations. Rebirth is unlimited. Beautiful connection to our current weather.
