For the Secret Keeper’s weekly writing prompt. This week’s words are:
SPARK | TOUCH | TWIST | HEALTH | REST
The spark that touched the bud
made the flower burst,
a caught cascade of petals
that pour from boughs still bare,
black as winter, shiny ’neath the rain.
Rest a while, and let sap rise,
a fountain of goodness,
and tardy leaves unfurl
to curl about the blown blooms
before march winds scatter,
the first spring glory.
