Spring’s Hiatus

Beautiful spring afternoon in central Ohio.

Delightful spring day

Soon approaching May

 

Open window’s view

Life’s freshness streams through

 

Everything alive

Nature’s best arrives

 

Birds fill nearby tree

Songs tweeting with glee

 

Virginia bluebells

Blooming, much to tell

 

Squirrels all about

Springtime’s early scout

 

Tree canopy swells

Leaves cast greenest spells

 

Geese gather in pairs

Nesting with love’s care

 

Smelling fresh-mown grass

Yards looking first-class

 

Sometimes nature blinks

At times, summer winks

 

Time to plant gardens

But, beg your pardon!

 

Overnight, snow calls

Spring’s waltz quickly stalls

 

Home furnace heats up

Winter stirs mix-up

 

Spring’s hiatus brings

Snowflakes’ final sting

Winter greets early spring morning.

    • Speaking of mud, I lived in a very small town in southeastern Montana when I began teaching (Plevna). The roads were made from crushed scoria, and its reddish tint would color the mud the same color when the spring thaw arrived.
