Spring Thaw

Spring Thaw
Bare arms
wave in time
to a wind symphony.
Ice crackles its applause
while the sun conducts above.
Wires weep over
the snow’s soft staccato song.
A stream of consciousness
A chorus of crocus
paints the earth.

(dlv 02/98)

We are in a spring thaw this week! Just a few days ago we were below zero – that is New Hampshire for you. The past couple days have been well above freezing and there is a “whole lot of melting goin’ on!” The snowbanks that was level with my window is now considerably shorter and the rooftops are shedding their ice and snow. Yesterday – I came across MUD! Yes, spring is coming – even if we can barely see over the snowbanks! Enjoy your day!
