'What Does Spring Smell Like?"


I could hear the wind WHISTLING in the breeze.
The sky was blue and the air SMELLED green and sweet.
Birdies were SWIRLING above my head.
I had a feeling like I could FLY!
I WONDER if this is spring?
I can't let go of this feeling!

Little seeds were WIGGLING in the dirt.
The little seeds played "PEEK A BOO " with me.
Little worms were SUN BATHING , and SLEEPING.
I was very QUIET, so not to disturb them.
Very QUIET.

I knew if I SEARCHED long enough, I would find the first signs of spring.
Look what I found!
These little flowers BLOOMED last night.
First there was just ONE little flower.
And then,
ONE by ONE,
the little flowers STRETCHED their petals to the sky .
One by one, they STRETCHED.
"Little flowers," I said to them softly......
"Don't be AFRAID.
Let the sun TOUCH your petals
Let the rain DRIZZLE around your roots
The RAINY days won't last FOREVER,
Lets just sit here together,
just YOU and ME.
I will wait right here with you
We will wait for spring to come.
Maybe it will be tomorrow.

Tonight I will dream about the sun shining on my shoulders and running in the green grass, and FLYING.
Nitey nite
love

Stubby said...

Hi Tweedles! I woke up the other morning to the sound of the birds singing. I understand bird songs so I translated for Mom:

We're back to sing to you
Spring is coming very soon
Get ready for the flowers to sprout
Time to turn your smile from a pout

Aren't they sweet? We don't have flower buds pushing through the snow yet but I keep searching.

Stubby xoxo

I always dream that I am running.

I see snowdrops, but as I am asleep so much never too sure if I did see them, or they were a dream.

Tweedles, we have signs of spring, too! Our snow is finally melting and making MUD! No flowers yet but the mud is a sure sign of good things to come - at least for us. Momma said that we should not run in the mud...sigh...but we do and then we get the towel-thing when we come back into the house.

Did you know that today is NATIONAL L♥VE YOUR PET DAY! Tell your mommas to get busy!

Hank said...

Tweedles, honey.....Spring can't git here soon enough!

Pee S: ya sure look purty in yer sweater!

sandy said...

Looking out the window and the still large mounds of snow....I want to smell spring, if only I could.

Love your pink sweater....it's gorgeous! Bright, cheery and very springy.
