Hooray for April, Poetry and …Snowstorms?


Each year we celebrate the arrival of spring with a brilliant blue river of flowers cascading down the hill. This year we’re still waiting.  Today’s storm feels like yet one more pause in the move toward spring. Truly beautiful…but…Sigh… I imagine the Scilla bulbs are swelling beneath the snow, yearning to burst through the earth in a riot of color.

Scilla Waits for Spring

Winter white returns
Our hillside Scilla river
will slumber longer

Tucked beneath the snow
Brilliant blossoms poised to burst
Scilla waits for spring

    Stunning pictures. There’s a wistfulness in your poem that I feel this year about spring. It seems to have delayed its arrival … Our blooms are just bursting out… they were about three weeks late. I like winter beauty but I do long for spring. Here’s to Ole Man Winter’s departure!
