Salt Lick

Now whites and purples dapple the ground,
rhododendron the deer feasted on all winter reclaiming turf,
sending five lavender frills
to meet the rain,
proving resurrection can happen anywhere
in the yard,     in your life,             mine,
this year of licking wounds,                             of salted time.
