lilac part II.

the lilac tree
is again ready
with blossoms so near
birth
& last year’s buds
now just reminders
turned inward upon themselves
this is how nature
teaches of us of passing
instructs us that
we must accept
in time
we must also let go
in time
all seasons
and their memories
only a lilac tree
could
reveal this
with such bold defiance
with such subtle grace
