The Grip of Winter…

Still seemingly strong

the iron grip of winter

starts to break slowly

drops reveal warmth underneath

new life waiting to break free.

A tree in full bloom

difficult to imagine

just few weeks ago

when snow kept coming down hard

and spring was a distant dream.

Thanks blogging friends for providing the inspiration for these two tanka poems in your comments yesterday. Have a wonderful “spring time” weekend everyone.

    1. Thanks! I always follow the snow storms as we used to live in the North East for 17 years and still have friends and family there…it’s been a long winter this year. But inevitably the spring will soon arrive 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts!
