Snowbank Signs of Spring: Nine

March 25, 2011 © SB 
The snowbank
by my sidewalk shrivels,
its architecture battered
from Gaudi spires
to sun-bruised lumps,
alfalfa trapping ice. 

Now, hour by hour, 
the heat advances,
bank retreats. 

Hour by hour,    
it slithers up my lawn   
and leaves behind

matted leaves

dirt, twigs congeal  
on last fall's grass.   

Tomorrow, this
will be gone.
