Happy First Day of Spring! Enjoy today, and tomorrow, and every day.
I love the spring. Even though it's been warmer for the past few weeks and I've already pulled out the flip flops and tank tops, there's something about today being the "Official" first day of spring that brings a new wave of optimism and cheer. The warmth has a LOT to do with it. But also, it's like a renewal of hope and happiness and forward momentum. I love it.
Enjoy some (slightly) spring-themed haikus and then go outside and welcome spring yourselves!
I feel a stirring
slight, but certain - YES! Something
beautiful is near
A hopeless flutter,
wings beneath the surface: My
insides beg for you
All these small-town sounds
"Hey!"s, "hah!"s, "stay out of the street!"s
Children welcome Spring
A howl rips through the
suburb, furious winds shake
trees, leaves, roofs, my faith.
The season's first buzz
"Bumble, bumble, come and play!"
Spring bees stretch their wings
