Spring rain

      Last evening we had our first spring rain and thunderstorm.  I am so looking forward to green grass and flowers...have yet to see my first robin. I'm told they have arrived.

Rainy Season Scraps, glitter, and pictures
 Tomorrow I get the results from my cat scan.   I do have some diverticulitis  and I'm sure my lady doctor will mention that.

A sense of warmth is tapping at the door;

And hope, a feeling out from distant lore

– Or so it seems – clears the deep refrain!

Emerging youth: a dormant lea awakes.

The raging colour, singing loud, partakes

In annual birth – spring is born again!

A zest anew for nascent life

Begins in floral train:

Carriage one: a snowdropp thrill;

Carriage two: the crocus;

Number three, a daffodil – dancing,

Drawing focus – as she would,

Attention seeker!

How I love our spring:

The bold and sleeker feel I get,

An inner glow, a ring!

I’ve paid the winter’s chilly debt, so

Now upon the wing!

   Warm spring blessings to all .
