The Spring Thing - Pussy Willows

The Spring Thing - Pussy Willows

 

Sunlight, flooding the World,

Blinding the eye, glittering across the pure white snow

The breath, fresh with the cold March air, cleansing to the nostrils.

There, upon the reds, browns and mottled grays of wintry willow

Basking in the warm rays of the sun

Silvery tufts of new life!

Peering out to greet all who pass

Silently but forcefully announcing the arrival of Spring

Evidence of new life, rebirth happening deep within

A message of hope to all who stop and listen!

This - along the railway track - as I take a brief break from my office work, bundled up to protect myself from the sharp March wind, finding this heartening reminder that Spring is imminent even though today we had temperatures of minus 20 something! Truly brings “spring” to the step!
