Signs of Spring



I grab my cup of tea, put on my slip on shoes 
and head out to porch to enjoy the first 
warm mornings in months. 
I sit down on the porch swing, 
clothes my eyes and take a deep breath.
I can smell the damp air 
as the morning dew begins to evaporate.
The morning breeze carries blossoms across the yard 
like a flurry of snow. Its chill leaves my skin with goose bumps.
The overgrown grass begins to dance with the wind, 
reminding me of ocean waves.
Looking up I see buds forming on the large walnut tree, 
threatening to burst open and fill the barren tree with leaves.
The birds are whistling as they dance from branch to branch on the trees. 
Spring is on the way and I can’t wait to play!
