signs of spring

i don't mind winter
but am so thankful to observe
ever-increasing signs of impending Spring
I revel in the freshness
the newness
the joy

days grow longer
the sun shines with yellow warmth
spring rains drench the thawing earth
temperatures rise, slow but sure

grass shoots up, thick and green
leaves are budding, tiny and hopeful
flowers unfurl bright banners of color

keen, plump robins hop and sing
honeybees labor, buzzing again
we ache to be outdoors
