March Roars Like a Lion

This transition from winter to spring

Oh, the weather I wish it would bring…

Is this the same for you?

Of course, each of us is so different in our preference.

I met a local shop owner who loves the cold

Even though he’s from Yemen, which is warm!

Another friend says that snow is romantic.

An extended family member adores the

Hot and humid days of summer in Florida.

She’ll have to wait a few months…

Currently, we are in transition: uncertain as the

US political situation and March weather in New York –

Fahrenheit days of 60 degrees

Followed by periods in the teens and twenties – welcoming snow.

Will crocuses that dare show their delicate, lovely

Faces be crushed?

I send them loving, protective energy…

Learning to bend as the snow-laden willow,

I walk carefully and deliberately on the ice: left over

Cloud-like cakes from last week’s storm.

Keeping my balance and flexibility sustains me.

My winter coat expects to keep me warm

As I patiently await the resurgence of warmer air

To kiss my face…

On this first day of spring,

I wish you joy and light,

Speak to you on April 3rd,
