dirt on the welcome mat

Like warm weather
In winter,
You stole. 
One blossom
Burst
And strangled-
 

You tangled seasons,
Circling 
A single brown hope

That stretched 
To grasp this
Pink
Soft
S
tar.

Hope forgot its own
Smooth skin
To brush
The jar of promise
Sweating dew,

Hope danced
With the wind,
Twirling its treasure
Too soon,

But its thin arm
Never let go-
This flower
Fell for you.
