Spring signs

"Sitting quietly, doing nothing, Spring comes, and the grass grows, by itself."

~ Bashō

It's almost there. I can smell it. Bouts of lightheadedness and meaningless giggles. The ticklish ache of life stirring to burst out of the tightly closed buds. The awakening of tiny blades of grass with gentle, dewy paws. The restless robins join the impatient, hoarse calls of the crows. One less layer stripped from the confused, stuffy mask of clothing. The more than usual spell of blue sky, even here, in the perennial rain abode. 

Spring sure is in the air. It sure is about to spring somewhere. 


  1. Do you think it is truly ready to spring on this side of the continent? I've just been out, and it is cold and damp, with more rain called for very soon. Your words are lovely.

  2. Oh dear, I seriously misread the signs. It has been nothing like this misguided post since yesterday. Back to dark and dull, again.

  3. Spring is coming !! Sunny days have repercussions on our moods.

    1. True Celine, very true. Nice must be beautiful at this time. Enjoy!
