messengers – solc2018#8

like bits of sunshine

refracted through a prism

scattered out over fields and in ditches

waving in the pleasant breezes

heads held high

spreading the warmth of the sun

 

their springtime announcements

even more noticeable

when cloudy skies hang low

and snow drifts through the air

“warmth was once here,

and sunny days will come again”

    Oh, oh! How delightful! I love, “like bits of sunshine / refracted through a prism.” Nice ending with a reassuring note in anticipation.

    These are the kinds of messengers I am awaiting. Pussy willows are here. Can daffodils be far behind?
