    Remembering 'winters grip' and driving home in the rain yesterday I was inspired…

    Blossom announces
    springs welcome return, undimmed
    dripping with cold rain.

    This makes me think of a person looking back on a relationship that has gone as if it were Summer and now it is winter. Maybe a cruel winter. But the seasonal reference also implies hope.
