Nature’s Arrogance

Summer-like weather arrives

Welcoming warmth, nature thrives

 

Snowy cold gone, long banished

Winter’s shadow, now vanished

 

Beaches open, pools start up

Outdoor chores now piling up

 

Paradise smiles, open now

But wait!  Winter’s final bow

 

Halt, recall nature’s humor

Winter’s back, not a rumor

 

Over Montana’s Big Sky

Snowflakes dance, find their bullseye

 

Cold and snow rudely drop in

Wrecking spring, crashing tailspin

 

How can this accident be?

Cold slides in, snow covers trees

 

Blessed with nature’s fairytale

Big Sky folks laugh, “Spring’s in jail”

 

Cornering winter’s good cheer

Just waiting a day my dear

 

Tomorrow’s change now coming

Spring’s freedom and homecoming

A freak event of nature found Montana turned in a winter wonderland over a period of a couple of days.  In the meantime, nearly all of the United States was enjoying the arrival of an early summer.  At times, living under the Big Sky does require a sense of humor.

    • Thanks Susan for sharing. Yes, nature is in control. My family back in Montana were digging in their closets for warmer coats while I was walking in shorts and a lighter weight shirt.
