Spring's Plight

The jogging path along Baxter Boulevard was snow covered yesterday morning, before the steady rain took it all away. Let's hope all is forgotten... the chance of more snow that is.

these black-laced branches etch scratches
across this early morning gray
our April buds
encased in white
leave dreams for perhaps another day
sometimes tomorrow never comes.

*Happy B-day to good friend and PA, Donna!


  1. spring snow brings out the poet in you, birdman, so it can't be all bad.

  2. Winter does not give up easily.

  3. Better you than us! Sorry about more snow in Maine!

  4. The rain in Maine washes spring snow down the drain!
    Enjoy your Sunday.
    Sunny :)
