Unexpected

 

Two old cats

chase each other

through the house

awakened by

spring’s arrival.

I throw open shuttered windows,

unlatch storm doors,

watch robins worm in mud

and straw grass.

Oops! Winter’s back!

 

 


Author Notes

Just when I thought spring was here for good, two feet of snow arrived. The gods were kind. It melted quick.

Hi, Patricia! I definitely get this. One day it’s 80 degrees, the next it’s snowing. Seems like we get about six weeks of spring like that every year.

Thanks for your comment Dave. It’s cold again in Upstate New York. Soon we will complain about the heat. I miss the interaction on WC. Is it taking a break?
