Waiting On A Friend
The landscape is lonely
waiting on a friend,
The warm spring winds
to blow in again.
Sprouts of green
dot the white,
The seasonal change is
once again in sight!

I wrote this poem in early March, 2013 when we had a similar unrelenting winter. I was daydreaming about spring returning. It felt like a good friend, who had been gone far too long, was returning for an overdue visit. And I am once again waiting for that friend, spring, to really show itself once more. Sadly, today, it is snowing again, so I will continue to wait for spring.

Special Note: The green sprouts are from previous year’s in my March garden just as the snow thaws showing the bulbs beautiful, green growth below. The purple flowers are early snow crocus that bloomed in mid March, 2013. An unusually early bloom time.
I leave you with a few words about waiting for spring. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
