In just…

Spring-
When the world is mud-luscious
So too are the dogs.
Husbands don’t appreciate it
as much as poets do.

In just spring-
When the road is free of snow and ice
my feet rejoice.
My legs don’t appreciate it
as much as my soul does.

In just spring-
When the world was snow-covered
only a week ago
Book club members laugh at last week’s snow cancellation,
secretly wishing we’d cancelled for beautiful weather, too.
They can’t have appreciated the abbreviated meeting
as much as I did!

In just spring-
When goats and chickens frolic around the yard
stopping only to give friendly pecks and rubs
Nature has lifted the moods of animals, too.
I doubt I appreciate the fresh air
as much as they do.

  1. Last week we had a huge storm, a week later I did pick up duty with out a coat and wished for my sunglasses. I enjoyed your piece. Especially the mud-luscious.

  2. In Just Spring – what a breath of springtime and mud-lucious fun. I had to laugh about wishing you could cancel book club for beautiful weather. My daughter is a PA and had many cancelled appts. last week while the Seattle area enjoyed gorgeous blue skies and sunshine.
