Spring Awakens {SOL Day #9: 3-09-15}

Long, dreary days of winter --

Being pushed away

With each passing day on the calendar.

Breaking free of winter's strong hold,

I venture out into the day.

                         I walk

                 I look

      I listen.

Signs of spring are showing:

In the melting snow,

The muddy trails,

The spots of green grass,

The conversations of returning birds.


Spring is awakening.

I am ready.

  1. No signs of Spring at my house but I did put out more seeds and suet so as to try to draw in birds who will help remind me that Spring will indeed arrive. Thanks for the lovely reminder. I enjoyed coming along on your walk.

  2. Yes! Yes! Yes! A sign of spring in my neck of the woods today too...in the sunshine and the melting snow.

  3. The birds are chattering, I think they are talking about spring too. Your picture doesn't look like the hold of winter is loosening too much. Here's to warmer temperatures.
