February temps
beginning to feel
like January.
More winter?

Where is Spring?
We need the warmth.
We are in dire need
of a break.

Nothing dramatic
Just something to
warm the bones
and toes.

A much needed
dose of
vitamin C
for the soul.

Let us remain
forever grateful
for the stubborn

that persists
in the
face of

trees and
holly in

Seasonal changes,
reminders that
now is not
