Signs of Spring

taken today


Early Spring

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows' wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

Lucky, lucky you! Other than warmer weather, there aren't many signs of spring here. :(

Oh boy how I long to see the flowers again!! We are totally hidden under the snow and ice and it's so cold all the time. Soo sick of it! :D Will you send a little bit of spring weather my way please? ;)
