Bright Yellow

Bright Yellow

after dark icy winter,
crocuses appear,

pushing silently up
through wet mud.

promising warmth,
long summer days.

so many promises,
if we believe the signs!

we often do,
we like signs,

things to help us 
with vague futures,

a feeling of surety,
though surety is
only an illusion,

another foolish
thing for us to
believe in.

we are only,
after all is said,
merely human.
