Sunday 160: Winter's Respite

1st spring like day
after winter’s chill

sunshine’s warmth
upon the flesh

gentle breezes
scented with fragrance
of budding dogwoods

ice cream

heralds
promise of spring

That first tease of Spring is so inspiring. Great 160 and thanks so much for playing.

Beautifully said makes my heart yearn for those spring like days -- a promise right around the bend.

Your poem lovely as always,

You know you're a die-hard ice cream fan when you see nothing wrong with eating ice cream while wearing a coat.

We are getting 6-10 inches tonight.
I still love ice cream though...

Delicious... Chocolate flavour for me please!

It's been spring-y here, too! I'm so excited!!! No ice cream for me, though...allergies+dairy=yuck.

Send some spring this way! We had a few days of deceptively warm weather and a good deal of the snow melted, but then we were hit with a winter storm. Eight inches of fresh snow dropped on us last night.

Wishing you a very beautiful spring..

Your words made me smile with joy.. :)

Sunday Hugs xx
