21 February

spring starts

 sipping in slowly

like the turn of a phrase

but there is no truth to her

she's like a teasing girl

who leaves you yearning

she is two, three, four, volumes

and when your two feet are planted firmly 

in the warmth of an afternoon careless and free

she hides coyly from the rage of old-man winter's sudden attack

and leaves you alone 

still freezing in a crisp breeze

nothing is free

winter and spring

sun and shade



  1. Yes, it's lovely to see signs of spring. I love spring.
    Lovely post to read.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
