Spring

Spring

Equinox – as daylight lasts as long as the night.
Change in the weather.
Lengthening of days.
The daffodils push towards the sun.

Equinox,
astronomical,
as the sun’s path moves north
or is it the earth that wobbles?

The sun of winter
melts into the winds.

More than facts.
A hope.
A fear.
Impatience as we long for rain.

Yellows and greens
replace the long dark night.

Through the window slats
beyond the road
the hill reaches to touch a cloud.

A timeless time ago
a child tossed a kite into the wind.
String, sticks, newsprint and torn rag tail
to travel just below the puffy clouds
of a bright spring sky.

    Your Spring poem is better than the one I learned and memorized:

    Spring has sprung,
    The grass has riz,
    I wonder where the birdies is?

    Seriously, though. I liked your poem. Isn’t it great when Spring comes when you live in a place that actually snows in the winter?!
