April Snow

Ah the joys of spring (unless you happen to live in Bend, Oregon) where spring is a season that arrives for a week in February, and then disappears until about May. We are teased with a warm day now and then, but a spring bursting with blossoms, the kind that turns a young man's thoughts to love,  takes place somewhere else. Below is a  poem describing a taste of spring I experienced on Highway 97.

"April Snow"

Beads of snow dust my windshield,
bounce off the hood,
scurry across the asphalt.

Where are the robins?
Five miles south of here
it was sunny.
