Looking for Spring

“Good-bye snow, cold, and ice!”
“So long, wardrobe of the last 5 months!”

The sun is slowing showing us reality.
And we have a choice.  
We could walk around the mess and pretend we don’t see it.

We could make fake snow and cover it all back up again.
We could hire someone else to deal with it so we don’t have to.
Or, we could clean it all up.  
Pile it up and burn it.
Get the earth clean and ready to bloom.

 For a bit of Spring green, I’m ready to work!
Sometimes, if the ice is thick, it takes some sharp instruments and lots of muscle.  
But, most of the time, 
all it takes is time . . . 
and the sun . . . 
for the earth to throw off that cover and . . .
