daylight savings…

This morning I’m reading about gardens 
and looking at early signs of spring 
springing up 
in other places 

I am relishing even a small bit of time 
with my love 

and 
sunshine 
(I’m liking that too) 
 
this time last year 
we had only just begun 
the shutting down 
now openings and closings 
feel a bit like  
old hat 
where somehow, you know 
we 
muddle through 
 
still  
even the early signs 
make this waning season  
feel  
somewhat more hopeful 
don’t they 
 
like shedding a layer 
extra blankets and stuff,
of clothing for sure 
but of fear 
of uncertainty 
not to say that we are through all of this 
but 
like a long winter 
we have after all…  made it thus far 
haven’t we 

so today, I guess I’m filling up on 
hopeful things 
like little green sprouts, 
plans for more colour
in the garden
like sunshine
and like
love

like really good reasons for  
gratitude 

as well today
in hope-filled things
and
just for good measure
 
I am also…   filling up
my pockets
with 
magic beans  ♥
