almost time to awaken to spring.

puxatawny phil with some other (less famous) celebs.
it’s his big day, and one of my favorite fun holidays
no matter what he predicts
about the coming of spring
(*not sure about his accuracy)
i love his spirit.
*the national climatic data center compared U.S. national temperatures from 1988 to 2012 to determine the accuracy of Phil’s predictions, and he’s only been proven correct 39% of the time — significantly worse than chance.
spring is almost here
nine weeks away seems so close
that i can hear it.
“music comes from an icicle as it melts, to live again as spring water.”

what a beautiful welcome
the magnolia trees gave me
their path of petals
leading me back
into my quiet town
“you are welcome as the flowers in may.”
“when april steps aside for may,
like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten;
fresh violets open every day:
to some new bird each hour we listen.”
APRIL FOOL, n.
The March fool with another month added to his folly.

“springtime is the land awakening.
the march winds are the morning yawn.”
