I am late getting to the Daily Prompt at WordPress.com because I slept late. Now the why of sleeping late is rather embarrassing but it goes something like this:
Yesterday I ached
And knowing it must be
From the warm front
So as I finished
The last of my three
By the time
I should have
Been sailing off
To the Land of Nod
I was wide,
Anyway now for the prompt: Run outside. Take a picture of the first thing you see. Run inside, Take a picture of the second thing you see. Write about the connection between these two random objects, people, or scenes.
Grabbing my camera I ran outside. Literally ran since that was the instruction and I am basically a rule follower.
The first thing? Yup. I mentioned warm winds the other day and the thirsty force of nature gobbled up my snow.
It’s a far cry from the photo I posted the other day (as above).
Next I ran again. (instructions and rules you know)
And this is what came up on the second look: Open windows, every where in the house beckoning in this false spring.
Birds are singing. Residual snow in the first photo is even less this few minutes later. The darned old Magnolia tree is again in bud as are so many other trees. False springs are such a danger for crops due later as a freeze is certain to follow and the rhythm of nature will be off and in the long run it will mean more failed crops, less food and higher priced food in the future.
BUT on such a day (it is 12 cenlsius which in real language is 53.6 F) it is impossible not to let ones heart soar in the glorious warmth. Yup for Canucks this is almost shorts and Tee weather! Because after all we Canadians are a hardy lot!
