spring has arrived

What a truly beautiful day the first day of Spring was.
Yesterday saw us with a great melting... and every puddle told a story of the sky above it.

Streams of water ran down the street and around every corner.
If you closed your eyes, your ears may have been tricked into believing
you were standing beside a brook run from the mountains. 
And the sky shown blue and white,
seen through branched not quite ready to bud yet.

We stayed out until the sun slipped behind the houses and trees.
After months of white and cold, this first of Spring days was too good to let go.

 I hope your Spring started off in the best way.
