Signs of spring are all around us.
In the little spears of green and red peaking up above the dirt.
In the melting ice and running water.
In the tiny growing buds on the trees.
In the increased flutter of birds. Was that a flash of a red breast?
In the lengthening days and the strengthening of the sun's warmth.
In the smell of warm dirt.
In the little bug crawling on my coat sleeve.
We see it, we hear it, we smell it, we feel it.
Winter is here today, but spring is coming.
What signs of springs surround you?
