Spring

There is a reason we call it mud season.

The middle of the road is muddy,

but the thawing releases its own sweet scent.

the sun is shining & warm,

the sky is blue,

a rushing stream washes the air.

I am grateful for this day.

  1. A Florida friend of mine had a daughter living in Vt. My friend spent one winter there and said she could take the snow, not the mud. Hope you dry out soon.

  2. It sounds like you are happy to back among the sights, and smells of home. My friend in VT often shows me photos of her road when we talk via FaceTime. It goes with the territory. You live in such a beautiful area.

    1. There is definitely a big contrast between spring in your part of the country and spring in mine, but it is all good if you look for it.

  6. How different Vermont is from Florida -- and from Hawaii, too. It's still chilly here to make me don a sweater.

  7. Wonderful, positive thoughts!
    We've got flooding in the region. Fortunately, our home is high and dry...

    1. It is definitely the darkness that I need to escape more than the cold--not that I am all that fond of extremely cold weather and piles of snow.

  9. The flooding has been terrible around here. I'm glad I'm high and dry! You, too!
