First Whispers of Spring



Survivor of the frost of winter
One who had the wilderness
For a pillow
Come spring a great singer


On tiny wings
Over branches, brambles & bushes
Tilts his head & begins to sing
The first whispers of spring
Blue sky sailing 
& green grass cities
Teaming with dragon flies,
Snakes & creepy crawly things.

Epilogue
& Thankful most of all

for God’s promise of spring.
Fin


Many birds 
 lost 
theirs lives in this last harsh winter 
across most of Europe & USA

  1. 1 AM Saturday--I have been 'sent' here, I think.
    "God's promise of Spring"...the renewal which never expires. Thank you for a lovely "55".

    (My father, deaf-blind, wrote me every week, I answered in braille --grin!) One week before he died--on April Fools' Day 1978--he wrote a most inspiring letter, and I'll make it an Easter post. I wish you'd check it out Sunday...I NEVER ask someone to 'read' my stuff!
    Thank you
    PEACE!

  14. Beautiful words with beautiful photos Joanny. My daughter sent me photos of her recent hike through Punchbowl Falls and they were so gorgeous. I forget what the color green in nature really is living here vs. the NW. I hope you had a good..good Easter? All my best for a great week ahead.

  24. Yes, the first whispers of spring are really nice, expected!!

    Spring is quite early and warm here, but I don't see many bees around yet, despite a lot of flowers really waiting for them!

  25. I want Spring to stop whispering and instead - yell, loudly!! It's cold here in Milwaukee! ;)

    I love this and the pictures are great, my fav is the one of the beaver in the birdhouse. lol

    Have a great day!

  26. Oh that little frozen bird is just so so sad, but I'm hoping he's singing in heaven.

    Cutest photo of the squirrel peeking out! So darling.

    Whispers of spring, no longer just rumors, but full blown gossip gone true.
