last day of winter
another two-foot

but the first day of spring
arrived warm and sunny


this could be the morning
color returns from the south

our windows face east
away from approaching weather


morning birdsong
measures spring

snow still covering the ground

      • Oddly, no! I do know Spring is brief and summer too …. A wise Irish farmer once said to me in the context of child rearing ‘the trick is to go WITH it’ …. It works with the weather and different climates too – after all resistance really is futile in this context 🙂
