A Sunny Sunday in February

January passed
with a noted absence
of snow, an inch or two,
no more.

In lieu of ermine
and lace, we were gifted
with gray.  At least you don’t
have to shovel rain.

It’s all okay;
rain or snow,
day to day we know
that we are blessed.

Then, lo and behold!
February 2nd and the sun
shone with purpose
and intent.

The air was alive
with the sound of bird song
and the gurgle of the creek
bursting to break through the ice.

There was a new bounce
in our steps, a spring if you will.
Maybe just a preview, but still
we are grateful.

    I forget if it was the 2nd, but we set a new high temperature record several days ago. The only thing which concerns me is if things start to open up and we get more freezing weather. A good poem to brighten a cloudy day.

      That is a real concern this year. We’ve really had no winter in this area…a bit of snow last night, a few cold days in December, but January was more like April. Of course, February has just begun.
