Haircut for the PALM TREE


 CELEBRATION


Our palm tree 
looks dead
after the bitter 
cold of winter,
dried fronds 
drape low.

Then 
a green shoot 
springs forth,
up from the center 
shouting: 
life,
recovery 
from 
sudden death.

New branches appear
rising to greet 
warmer air,
in time
to celebrate 
another summer.
