Winter “throws the dummy”

We’ve been shedding layers and the sweet seduction birdsong has begun.  Flower-buds are peeping from barren stems.  Like the glaciers that once carved the lands around us, the ice and snow have once again vanished leaving a trail of fine gravel as their only trace.  But the sky exposes the fake: Winter is coming back.

early Spring
every bright new thing
born to shiver

      And fake it certainly was! Definitely back to Chillsville, much to the chagrin of almost everyone but me; I’m just disappointed we haven’t seen any more decent snow-falls!
