First Signs

It's starting

It's Starting
In sheltered spots
Heat radiates
Shoots poke from the ground
It's coming

Snow still covers
Most of the ground
But mud is emerging
The smell of spring
It's coming

My eyes search  out each tiny sign
No robin yet
But the cardinals have begun
their springtime songs
It's coming

A winter's worth of dirt
Still lingers in the snowbanks
Some see only crud
I see signs of spring
It's coming

Mud Season Starts


  1. I like your positive attitude, Susan - I think your spring will emerge soon. I look forward to your photos of those blooms!

  2. Love to see small lives to come out on the earth. I really like the first photo,Susan.
