RestlessWe cannot see the sun.
It remains obscure, indifferent.
It hides and plays peek-a-boo,
Lost in winter's wind.
Not soft but cut against the horizon line.
No cheer, no lantern light
To walk the weary traveler home.
Spring waits. But draws its lines
and then moves them.
Wanting to move the wheels of the world.
But then, one day, a break in the weather.
Springs finds us while we are still
muttering to ourselves.
And we can finally relax,
knowing we were
along for the ride.
