a late springing














snow topped hills
peek out upon the horizon

last weeks frost lingers
in the thick earth

the sun is higher in the blue,
volcanic ash-free skies

bare branches stretch out
proudly showing off their new buds

crowded cafe tables
clutter the streets

renewed vigour and hope
drowns out
the winter blues

daffodils stand tall
wave bravely,

a new hairstyle
trashed in the fresh breeze

exposed hands and feet
in open toe shoes, chilled

manicured toes and fingernails,
defiantly painted slut red

sunglasses perched
at the ready on head

breathing deeply of the sweeter spring air
the promise of new beginnings

  8. Lovely, even the bit about the trashed hairdo!

    City Centre Manchester was quite cosmopolitan today with everyone outside at the street cafes.

    Love Spring!

  13. http://www.deviantart.com/ This is the art site I was wibbling on about - Don't know how it all works, only that I think Anne-Julie Aubrey started there... And, although your profile piccie is very lovely, it's no longer you, Saz! You are even more beautiful now, and my OH was ueber-amazed at how wonderful you look... Honestly, you look ten or twenty years younger than your years, at least, so there! xox

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
