How brief this span of light

Sweet harbingers of  Spring,
the rhododendrons bud and glow
and then begin to bloom
so early.

Rejoicing in the sudden burst of color
we forget
how brief this span of light
until one morning,
walking by,
the shock of crimson
underneath our feet
will trip us up
reminding us --
"Summer is icumin in."
