Signs of Spring in 160


Winter's cold
was yielding
to the warming sun,
as Mother Earth
tilted on her axis.
Bare branches blurred
in soft green and pink edges.
Teasing Spring’s arrival.

Wait! This is the first winter in a decade I have nothing to complain about. It may stay a bit, for a while longer yet...one more huge dump on DC would be cool. I like the silence.

You are on the same time schedule as I am. Yet, this is up and running already. There must be an automatic button one can access to post.

We went in opposite weather directions although I don't think Spring can peek through our snow yet.

Here I am impatiently waiting for spring and summer. And you remind me once again it still isn't here. Patience is a virtue.

Lovely 160. I remember the first signs of spring when I lived in the North. I would see the first delicate buds on the branches of the cherry blossoms or little green shoots coming up through the ground. It was always so exciting.
