Spring Floats

Mother Nature teases us with hints of Mardi Gras. Tiny flares of yellow and purple dot the brown barren leaf carpet as vivid crocus blooms appear among green throw rugs of creeping phlox. Her spring decor will be awesome as always.

Punxsutawney Phil may have dismayed the East Coast with warnings of six more weeks of winter, but Ripley County Romeo disagreed with that dreary forecast; his shadow didn’t come out to play. Mother Earth seems bored with winter’s monotones as she pulls colorful spring accessories from seasonal storage.

Wispy clouds swirl across a canvas
of blue sky;
Flags dance in the fickle breeze as it
waltzes by.
Could be a time for philosophizing,
but why,
When sun and earth tempt us in ways
one can’t deny?

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Spring is coming!
