Spring officially began a week ago - can hardly tell up here, but there are a few signs heralding the season between winter, mud and black fly season in Maine. Maybe seasons don't change much or at all where you live, but please show us what the end of March looks like in your locale.

Tiny buds are appearing
Tiny buds are appearing...

Snow turns dirty and reveals last falls dead leaves
Snow turns dirty and reveals last falls dead leave...

Ice starts breaking up
Ice starts breaking up...



And Song birds return
And Song birds return...

I know it's Spring when the wild flowers start popping.

Welcome Spring
Oh Happy Day! The first day of spring! Good bye winter, I am not sorry to see you go although your presence the last few days has been gentle. My apologies to those who have read this before. I wrote this several springs ago but it has become my welcome acknowledgement to this delightful season every since.


Personifications of Spring
spring whispered and I listened

as trees swung their bare branches in welcome

pussy willows basked in warm sunlight

lulled by blended sounds of mating melodies

singing ageless songs of hopeful renewal

spring sighed and I watched

as melting snow created lawn ponds

awakened roots in the moist earth

quenched their frozen winter thirst

and yearned to stretch their green shoots upward

spring shouted and I felt its power

as disintegrating river ice abandoned its frozen grasp

pelting rains and furious winds spurned slothful winter

and rivers swelled their banks with prideful freedom

while egg laden fish dreamed of journeying home

spring returned today and I smiled

and was content

Pussy Willows basking in the sunlight
Pussy Willows basking in the sunlight...

green shoots realeasd from their frozen grasp
green shoots  realeasd from their frozen grasp...

disintegrating river ice
disintegrating river ice...

road closed water over the road
road closed water over the road...

Thank you, Bob. Your storm sky from Free Sunday surely qualifies as a "spring" phenomenon.

These are gorgeous, Gary. I've never seen a fairy slipper. They are very dainty.

Wonderful, Fred Ann. Your poetry describes the seasonal change beautifully and your images visualized it.
