I lie in bed and
listen to the sounds of spring–
birds, peepers, traffic.

Raked some leaves today–

last year’s crop–heavy and brown–

obscuring spring bulbs.

A lovely day here

in the little village.

Seems that spring has sprung.

I see puffy clouds

moving through a blue, blue sky.

On the cusp of Spring.

Buds are emerging.

Reverse the process, I say.

The freeze is coming.

Blustery cool day.
It’s time for the gardening
(you can keep the heat).

Damn summer is here.
Two-week Spring then fast forward
to heat and pollen.
