Hints of Spring

My heart is sparking
With the sounds of Spring.
The early morning greeting
Of song and busyness,
Calling me to the surety
That, yes, this snow will stop.
That the piles of whiteness in the yard
Will give way to shoots of green
And all those tulips, planted in the fall,
Will soon emerge triumphant
In a blaze of color.
Anticipation fills me with expectancy
And Winter’s dreary skies
Cannot hold back
The birds return.

Prema Rose
