Little Signs, Pachamama and the Smell of Spring

...tulips of joy

…tulips of joy

Pachamama, we can only witness  —  your inspirations
welling up green and bright
when light stirs you
fragrant
into spring.

....daffodils

….daffodils

the roots of peony stirring into growth

Little signs: the roots of peony stirring, waking!

Overheard rhetorical question in the tiny Paonia post office this morning, a 55 degree day before another winter storm tonight: “Spring is on it’s way – eventually, right?” And then the rugged questioner turned, gray bearded and smiling, at me. I stopped walking for a moment, and smiled back.
