Finally, Spring?
(haibun-type with Elfje)

Six twenty-eight this morning was the official time;
however Spring may be delayed as Winter hangs
on to the petticoat of warm hopes, like a child clinging
securely to their mother not wanting to let go for
fear of being forgotten, not ready to move forward.

Winters’
Tight grip
Seeks attention as
Mother Nature moves towards
Spring

Observing 13
Fickle Spring Snows
(Elfje quad set)

Red
Cardinals eating
Green buds, yellow
Forsythia petals on the
Bush

Are
They aware
That our storm
Is somehow delayed a
Day

Slow
Moving just
Means once here
There may be more
Accumulation

Now
It’s due
Tuesday and Wednesday;
A foot to eighteen
Inches

(Of course the accumulation depends on where you are;
But even 6” – 8”s will cause enough grief on the roads –
And it still is very bitter cold. Just 18 F at 8 am)
