First Day of Spring

Port Alberni Owl - local photographer took this shot out the window to their back yard


Today, for the first time since last fall, I :

heard the loud roar of a lawn mower;

inhaled the scent of  fresh-grass cuttings, smelling like childhood;

was outside without a jacket;

drove with the window down;

had my first barbecue;

sat on the porch swing;

watched the dogs lounging all afternoon
in the warm sunlight -

all the heartwarming, ordinary/extraordinary

- (since winter was so long) -

pleasures of early spring.

  1. How wonderful, Sherry. I see you drank up the day like a glass of champagne.
