Higan (Spring equinox)

20 Mar


on the calendar

today winter becomes spring

winds still from the north


outside my window

a foot of new fallen snow

equinox my eye


deep snow in the woods

not much sap in the buckets

pancakes no syrup

    I guess you are having the delayed version of spring too….I love your descriptions of this, presented in a cheerful tone…..’equinox my eye’ – cool phrase

    Although I’m laughing at your last piece, pancakes without syrup is really no laughing matter. May the sap flow start soon and be abundant!

    The north winds are still there as a not-so-gentle reminder that winter is always lurking in the background…somewhere.

    Equinoctial Rains

    Three great takes on this prompt. I love the second, but on the flip side, pancakes with no syrup gave me a giggle. Thank you 🙂
