dVerse — Quadrille — spring dreams

on

This mix of purple, white and yellow Crocus will pop up in early spring  through the snow. Tough yet cheerful, when this… | Crocus bulbs, Crocus  flower, Bulb flowers

swift as wind currents
whirl round the trees
warm as the sunshine
brings hums of bees
sprite as ice waters
can dance down creek
spring sings bird songs
life stirs from sleep
blossoms of the crocus
yellow purple white preens
appetize restful waking dreams

      Oh no, Bjorn 😦 It’s stayed sunny here and most days “warm” enough to walk to the mailbox without a coat. Hoping it clears for you soon.

  5. Spring feels so close I can practically taste it. I do like the image of currents at the start of your quadrille, it made me think of the movement in murmurations of sparrows, the way they move across the sky in waves and ripples.

        1. We didn’t really get any snow this winter, but it has rained constantly. Some sun to dry everything up would be great.

          Sunny and 70! Yippee! Hey I wanted to give you an update on that heron pic I want to make a collage out of. Now that I have a new (it’s an old one my younger son had laying around) printer and scanner I was able to print out a greyscale image of it 🙂

        Oh, they got warm, and now they’re cold again. We had some snow, which we’ll keep getting through April. Spring requires blind optimism in Chicago.
