Spring Fling


Photo: Taken in my garden today. I didn’t do it, I promise. And that’s a clay pot. Who knows what else is under there!


forging a path through
no shrinking from adversity
tulips in the midst
of a glorious spring fling
gone are thoughts of winter

      • Yeah, same here! It’s incredibly nice one day, then goes back to bitterly cold weather. I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind, haha. But, you’re right. We’ll get there eventually! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒป

  1. Love the poem (which looks like a gogyohka to me ๐Ÿ™‚ )–and I’m fascinated by the overturned pot with green “life” bravely, defiantly rising victorious! Hurray!!!


  2. I love it when plants do things like that! When I see plants that pop up in places where you would never expect it possible, I try to let them go. Like who am I to interfere with that kind of determination?


    • Yep. I’m wondering if I should water it. Then I think, that would be messing with the normal flow of things. But it might be already pretty moist under there. So I leave it alone. It’s between it and the rain now๐Ÿ˜Š
