Not Quite Spring Here in Winnipeg!

Not quite Spring here in Winnipeg!
Plus temperatures,
wet pavements
are a tease.
Tires still spit specks
clouding windshields,
camouflaging speeding cars
on dirty gray city streets.
I long for
– slivers of light green
transforming bland lawns;
– yellow dandelions
pushing through muck;
– swelling buds
on wan skeletal trees;
– blue/mauve lilacs
scenting dusty air;
-warming sun
thawing my bones;
– cumulus clouds
cushioning bitter musings;
– a blue vault of heaven
lightening my heart.
