Oh the light! This past Sunday was glorious!
You know Spring is tapping on the door when the light gets long arms and stretches out across the ground like a morning yawn. Those shadowy crisscorssing reaches greeted us on our wooded walk today.
Combine that light with the ground sounds underfoot; the Earth's mingled voices talking in thawing clattering crunching snow sheets - in strong sharps - mixed with a muck-sucking sound as wetness grabbed at my heels. What a music sheet by nature to my ears!
And the light, did I mention the light?! Shappire blus skies and midnight blue on the snow, burnt orange in the grasses, milky cream colored light in the house and warm dappled dots of light jumping right over the kitchen table! Oh the light!
Wrigley and I wrestled branches and twigs along the walk today to avoid the sidewinder trechery of the ice patches on the path. It was all good even with the brown colored dawg replacing my white one as the mud spatter clinged to her underbelly and paws.
But, beyond the light, the real reason I know spring is just around the corner is seeing the green heads of my hyacinth bulbs peeking there way out of the frozen ground under the barren tree out front of my house. Their sight wasn't lost on the puffed red cardinals and skirting chickadee - all peeping away like a full on band while perched on her branches.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the light and sounds of the Earth waking up near you.
