Steadily Towards Spring

Days of darkest night recede
Fading into memories
As the calendar marches
Steadily towards Spring

My daily departures
Under clear skies
Morning and evening
Are filled
With mountain ridges in the east
And hilltops to the west
Glowing under technicolor skies
Of sunrise and sunset

The days grow longer
Almost imperceptibly at first
But growing more obvious
Week after week
Becoming day after day

The land continues to awaken
Green shoots break through soil
Snowdrops and nettle
Seeking early light
On the rose that defied winter
By holding onto blossoms
More buds start to form
Waiting to open

As the calendar marches
Steadily towards spring
