...an ode to spring



Spring


Itching to ride


but the wind blows sideways


or the rain pours down.


Beautiful blossoms


make Claritin a much needed companion


to the daily prayer for calm, dry, sunny days.


Oh Spring!


You tricked me.


I thought by now my extra winter baggage would be falling away


leaving no trace as it hit the pavement beneath my wheels.


Waiting, impatiently...

Whoa, Doozyanner - that's VERY good. You are a deft hand at poetry. And I share your sentiments. I've been reviewing some recent posts and I feel like an old biddy. All I do is gritch on and on about the wind and the allergies. I wonder if it becomes more intolerable as we age or if it truly has been a longer wait for peace and warmth this year?

WV - orsht. Orsht I wish the wind would stop blowing!

Thanks, Limes. And STILL, the wind blows! Usually we get a few days reprieve in between the gale forces--I was SURE I'd get a ride in this afternoon.

Had a beautiful weekend. Surely you got some riding in?

Been thinking about the book list thing. I've thought of a couple recommendations for you.
