My bones are saying the same thing: Spring?

Spring still a rumor around here, Bubba. Snow expected later today.

Good grief - Isn't that the truth, Bill - my old bones aren't responding like they used to. Terrific poem, my friend. (P.S. - we're in about the second "warm-up" period thus far in spring).

spring? it's been snowing here for 2 days again, another 10 cm or so (=4 in) accumulated, temperatures all day below freezing, with more of the same to come...
and it seems like much of the northern hemisphere is similarly affected...

As the song goes, "Spring will be a little late this year."

spring equinox
day and night
equally cold

among themselves

Good news, Gillena. The snow that was predicted didn't come. We just had cold winter rain instead. (Maybe I'll write that as a haiku)

But you, Gillena, are the very breath of spring. Thank you.
