Peach blooms

Even a rainy day under a gray sky
 is beautiful when the peach tree blooms.
It is worth a walk in the cold drizzle 
to look at the blossoms close
 and see the sprays of leaves beginning to uncurl. 
 The scent on a wind can fill an lonely heart with hopes. 
The color is the perfect pink 
of a first daughter’s first Sunday dress.
