redbud winter surprise – SOLC 2017 #13


not a sound to warn us

no sense of time when we awoke

what a surprise to see

the flocked trees and white roofs

when we looked outside



where was this two months ago?

and will there truly be more tonight as they say?



the young leaves and buds are shivering

and even now, as it has melted

what will the continuing cold do

to our new spring greens?


still – this beauty was so peaceful

    I am always concerned about the tender blooms. In my neck of the woods it is either 55 degrees or in the teens. Last I heard we might get nearly two feet of snow. YIKES!

    That was what I feared this weekend. We didn’t get the snow but it was cold and continues to be cold this week. I wrote about my peach blossoms surviving today. Hope your vegetation rebounds.

    What a beautiful poem and pictures! It does indeed look peaceful from your last picture, but if you want to know my true thoughts on the snow, check out my blog called “On Snow”. : )
