Spring arrives in bits and pieces
fits and starts
one step forward, two steps back
like a Chacha.
Temperatures soar for a day or three
then dive down like a bird of prey
But then, little by little,
all of the pieces come together!
The scent of lilacs
The sound of frogs and hummingbirds
The creeks rushing from melt off
Buds on the aspens
Days growing longer at dawn and dusk
The warmth of the sun
YES! All the signs are here
