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.”

one of my favorite author’s
about my favorite season
as we slip from summer into autumn
august is the sunday of summer.
“that beautiful season the summer!
filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
– henry wadsworth longfellow

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

“It is the first mild day of March:
Each minute sweeter than before…
There is a blessing in the air,
Which seems a sense of joy to yield
To the bare trees, and mountains bare,
And grass in the green field…
We from to-day, my Friend, will date
The opening of the year.
Love, now an universal birth,
From heart to heart is stealing,
From earth to man, from man to earth:
—It is the hour of feeling.’
~William Wordsworth (1770–1850), “To My Sister”

the layers of snow and ice
the remnants of winter
not yet spring
the river emerges
never ceasing to flow.
“be like a river. be open. flow.

but the people are better behaved and a groundhog is invited.”

change is afoot
winter solstice has arrived.
“change in all things is sweet.”
