Spring (poem)

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
