The Inuit say 

when the malikkaat unfold 

summer is coming

 

and you long to trust this

 

to know 

a place free of killing frost,

a flowered 

respite,

where the ground 

gives

under your bones.

 

Watch as this bright face turns

toward the light,

even as the snow clouds steal

over the mountains.

 

Sometimes

it takes more than courage

to open.

 

Sometimes

it takes a willingness

to lose even the sun

 

before a new season 

can arrive.
