Imaginary Garden

All of a sudden - the sun is warmer..the days are longer..the birds are singing their morning songs.

All of a sudden - the winter that never quite arrived..is abating...making room and space for what will soon be spring.

I am reminding myself - it's still February. Winter isn't - yet - done and gone.

On a day like today..when I can smell the damp earth..when feel the warmth of the sun...when hear the singing - I find myself wishing for what's to come.

I imagine flowers blooming. I make my own garden. I celebrate my very own early spring.
