March 16.21: Coping



The gods of winter rose

against the fragile spring,

roared and raged in angst,

spat ice on everything.

The lilac buds all shivered,

the ducks could barely quack;

spring appeared forsaken,

winter had come back.

But winter gods, those bullies,

with eyes so cold and shifty,

know their days are numbered:

today it will be 50!

  1. I LOVE this one! Perfect! This is exactly the same weather we are having. It was wicked cold here yesterday and today and then we are having a couple of warmer days. Winter just doesn’t want to let go. Happy Tuesday. 🙂

    • Thanks, Judy! It is so goofy, isn’t it? This is the kind of weather that drives gardeners to chocolate! A happy Tuesday to you too!

  2. I’m rejoicing with you!!

    • Thank you! Fog like white pea soup this morning as the temperature climbs. Those poor lilac buds are so confused!

  3. 50 and the ducks hardly quacking – can’t be bad!
