Flower Power

just one leaf
one petal
in this whitewashed snow-world
just one sign of life
to break the monotone;

head to the earth
I feel no force
hear no beat
but I whisper anyway,
willing the first shoots to unfurl
the smallest buds to pop
to turn their rainbow faces skyward
and begin recolouring this cold world

NaPoWriMo day 8 is flower day.
