Breath Before Spring

Springtime in the Rockies. I really do hate this term. It is usually used to describe the crazy winter weather we get in March and April. You know the go home Colorado you’re drunk snow?

We are having that kind of day today. I’m done with snow. I know I shouldn’t be. I signed up for this trip and it’s part of the fun of living here. I really want to update everyone on how things are going for us in Estes Park, but that will have to come in the next few posts. Instead today, I’m sharing this…

From the Back Deck April 13, 2014

This is the view from our deck today. I’m not kidding. We now live in a postcard. But even though it is beautiful, I still long for warmer weather. Soon.

So I’m really going to put myself out there and share this with you friends. A little poem I wrote exactly a year ago. Evidently it snowed a year ago in Colorado Springs and I was wishing for spring there as well.

Breath Before Spring

Light shadows shifting…

   grass awakening…

     buds about to open…

      all paused by snow.

Holding off wind…

  fighting time…

    animals stirring…

      water running.

Longer days stretching…

  a deep breath…

    anxious hearts…

     warmer days.

Prayers prayed for winter’s grip to release.

  1. It did do the same thing last year, Julie. I remember posting a photo of the decorative bunny on our patio table covered with snow. I’ve just started telling myself: but that’s what brings the GREEN later! Just hope all our spring buds aren’t nipped today. Glad you are blogging–and I love the poem!

    • hank you Nancy. I’ve finally gotten to a place where I think we are somewhat getting settled. I keep telling myself the snow now will help to have no fires later. Stay warm friend!
