Hide and Seek

I caught a whiff of spring yesterday ~
Efforts to capture its fleeting essence
Were for naught.
Freshness escorted by bird ballads
replaced by cold rain and squally winds.

Winds threaten spring again today ~
We are enrobed by a diaphanous cape of fog.
Spring plays hide and seek
But I will keep looking ~
even if I have to count to one thousand and sixty-two.

  1. This is wonderful!

  2. A delightful little poem.

  3. Spring will get there. You can count on it, but you don’t have to. 🙂

  4. It will be back on Sunday….and I will be absorbing its goodness on my deck with a glass of wine in hand!

  5. Love it! You spell out spring with such creativity.

  6. Okay.. so I had to look up the word diaphanous…. lol but you’re right spring is playing hide n seek We’ve only been teased with a bit of sunshine on a still cold day… Looks promising for Sunday though.. Diane

  7. You and me both! The sun has been teasing us quite a lot this past week though it looks like spring is still fighting a losing battle so far. Sigh. I’ve never experienced a more temperamental April. Then again, I’ve been spoiled by my Socal upbringing so I guess this is what most people go through more often than not. Also, is one thousand and sixty-two an arbitrary number or a specifically chosen one? 🙂

  8. Spring will come soon (I hope). 😀

  9. Keep counting.. it snowed here today. I’ve got all fingers and toes crossed that the sun comes out and stays out.

  10. Fingers crossed spring comes soon, I am dying for autumn now 😀
