Spring is finally here

crocus budsDSC_0028yellow budsDSC_0014blue iris budDSC_0030trumpeter swanDSC_0057 There’s a rustle in the trees
A rumbling in the earth
A little sprig that’s pushing through
Color bursting through earth’s seams.

A little bit of spring
Is coming through this cold.
The wind is blowing mighty

The earth is finally yielding
The treasures it’s been keeping.


Winter blues

rainy iris In the frigid throes of winter

I hear the whistle from my tea.

I dream of warmth and spring.

The colors are vibrating

after a warm spring rain.

Sun piercing through trees

burning off raindrops

soaking into my veins

and drying my tears.
