Rapid Thaw

Rapid thaw.
Snow melt flowing down the hill,
chuckling like a mountain stream
along the gutter and down the drain.

Early flowering primrose
shakes off her snowy duvet,
plumps up her pretty petals;
Spring is on the way.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Two stones today – the thaw has come so quickly I can’t keep up! The first one should really have been an extra yesterday afternoon. Today, apart from lingering in a few isolated patches, the snow has melted away.

Bad Start!

A mug of tea
spilled on the duvet;
the day starts badly.
