march spring winter ice


yesterday's rain.
today's ice.
snow sprinkled across the top.
the tulip tree blooms are pink from far away,
the color of cold when you step close.

i know people like that.

    1. It was only when I began blogging that i discovered that this was called a magnolia in other parts of the world. We have magnolias, but they're only the giant white ones. The pink ones we call tulip trees - I have no idea when that began. :)
