On My Way To Market

On my way to market,
it caught me by surprise
pushing through the melting snow
near the sidewalk
in the warm March sunshine.
The wind blew cold
but I—
I stopped—
by the golden beauty of the petals
there below:
bold, vibrant,
like sunshine woven in silk
admitting nothing of fragility.
Home again,
Unpacking my canvas bag,
My eyes closed and I saw it again,
in my mind’s eye,
that crocus, 
fearless and fierce.
