New life


The morning after a good spring rain
brings all of the colors
out from under the pollen yellow
or seed brown


 I can look out my front window
and see a sea of green
The second pasture
That was brown last week
is green with envy that the front lawns
got a head start.
Even outside my computer/laundry room window
the tips of the bushes are  New green

And if you look very carefully-
a touch of red
The Cardinal laid her eggs in the middle of the storm
in the shelter of the roof
and the chimney wall
and the bed of green

Beautiful views. Hope you get just the right amount of rain and not too much.

Spring really is a lovely season! Ditto here. Green is coming up all over. Looks so lovely.
