Snow In April

It started snowing on a Sunday

that’s certain
and it was April
that’s why I remember
it was a Sunday in April
and I was concerned

It started snowing in April
and it stayed
spring never came
trees never flowered
no fruits developed
the bees all died

The snow turned grey in June
from all the exhaust
so exhausted
we tried to keep warm
and digitally connected
in our escape

Snow has left now
but all is grey beneath
rotten, dead
a full stop
ending our story
mid sentence

It started snowing on a Sunday
I know, on April 1st, even
I hoped it was Nature
playing April’s Fool
postponing spring
but it wasn’t
