March madness?

Yesterday was sunny

I didn’t even wear a scarf.

Today is grey skies

with snow falling like sprinkles

on the dark hard cupcake of the ground.

A flash of something bright catches my eye

as I walk quickly along the sidewalk.

I look up.

Branches loaded with blossoms

Confused by the topsy-turvy weather?

No.

Just clumps of snow

Huddled against the few dry leaves clinging

Desperately to the tips of those branches.

No lamb yet.

Winter’s lion is still roaring,

if only for today.
