Here's one Aries baby, March 22,
jumping to the conclusion that
Jack Frost is history once more!!
Falling in winter's demise,
three inches of snow can't halt
the impertinence of daffodils
pushing to stand on earth
made virgin again.
Renaissance in the garden
is a holiday for Aries.
A promise carried on the air,
a trace of green to sniff as hope,
to live anew no matter what the year collected.
Aries discards history with a snap so sharp
that the past is not only over and done,
but resting in winter's crypt.
At the vernal turn,
trust without end,
a blade of grass,
a childlike laugh,
once more to cross
the threshold into spring.
from TWO GHOSTS/ poems

Hi Lyn,

We have beautiful blue sky and sunshine that we've been enjoying for three days. Maybe I should send some over?!

Have a very Happy Birthday and I hope Spring wins through soon!

Hi Derrick-
Thank you, and do rush some sunshine over..I'm so deprived!!

I heard you had flurries today to welcome spring! Nevermind, now that we have reached the equinox, none of that stuff will last. We are finally entering the warmth again!

Yes, warmth...the snow(imagine!) stopped, the sun came's spring!

'pushing to stand on earth'

That's such a powerful line. The force of nature wins in the end.

Greetings from London.

I can never enjoy spring--my allergies prevent this all the time.

Thank you...I do think we have to "take a stand"!

I have great sympathy for this condition, many around me really suffer the seasons. I pray that you find a "cure".

Oh, I see you've got a Sisterhood award. Oh well! Now you've got two. (No need to post double, just know I'm thinking of you in that way.)
