Spring in Winter

A poem about the lack of snow this winter where I live

I never saw any white on the ground,

unless you count the morning frost

that disappeared before nine.

Spring peepers are harmonizing

with songbirds in an early spring symphony,

a pleasant sound to accompany my daydreams.

***

My closet has become a smorgasbord of every season.

I'm wearing sundresses under heavy trenchcoats

because the weather is unpredictable.

Now I am preparing for snow in April,

enough so the blooms poke out to remind us it's spring.

Have they been able to adapt as easy as I with the constant changes?

***

What a contradictory scene I see before me:

trees so bare when it feels like spring

in a place used to all four seasons.

I don't like the freezing snow

but even I must admit that I missed it.

Because, truly, what is winter without one good snow?

    I identified with this poem so easily. We often experience weather that can't make up it's mind about the season. I wish for you a wet spring, hot summer, crisp fall, and white winter.

    Congrats!! Perfect showing of how when snow doesn’t show up, we then miss it. Jonquils, Snowdrops pushing up but not through snow.

    Excellent work.

  • Spring in Winter? This title is full of paradox! I'm curious to see how you explore this contrasting concept.

    Oh, I feel this. It hasn't snowed much where I am either and it feels so unnatural. Thank you for writing and sharing this, and congratulations on Top Story!

    Excellent sentiments! Scary too at the same time. I can't imagine wintertime without snow. Hopefully, we can blame El Nino this year. Hopefully...

    This is great. Its a climate chaos here too. Blossom appearing while last years geraniums are still green
