Thinking Into Spring As I Listen To Nathalie Stutzmann

Stutzmann sings”Ebarme Dich”.

I think into Spring.

Her wrists like rainbows

Rise and bend with rhythm

An aria stretching the skies

With sorrow.

That price of hope

Is the last supper of explanations,

A call to cloister to hide away,

To hide the seed

On warmish nights when frost could still fall.

So what was can die

And what will be,

Can be what is.

Does the song make me grieve,

At all

This loss of what was cold?

The winter of discontent?

No.

That is a mercy.

This is Spring.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fav Things Verse Three

cees-fun-foto

Cee has challenged us to create a post from this prompt…

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, Silver white winters that melt into springs, These are a few of my favorite things.

I have no white- dress-blue-satin-sashed girls for this challenge. What I do have is a ton of silvery white winter. With two more feet of the slivery white wintry stuff ready to dump on my head I am really looking forward to the melting into spring thing.

Spring?

This post was written in response to the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: SPRING

I actually do feel pretty springish today. It’s not that the traditional things like daffodils or tulips are abounding anywhere (even the first dandelions haven’t budded yet) but this was us two short  weeks ago.

So the fact that today my world looks like this

gives me hope that spring has finally arrived!
