On some days - it's just that feeling.
A few spots of unexpected life set against a landscape of a season captured in the in between.
For a moment - I imagined spring.
And the flowers blooming. And the grass greening. And the cows idly grazing.
Transforming this scene from shades of March grey to full spectrum technicolor.
I approached with caution. They were so peaceful...so quiet...so sweet. I dared not disturb.
There were eight. I counted.
I dared not breathe.
One raised her head and looked at me with question.
Is she safe?
May we stay?...or must we run away?
I could hear their hesitancy. I could see their fear. I wanted to reassure them.
And then - just like that - they turned and ran and disappeared.
All that remained was - just that feeling.
Impossible to describe.
