A Season Away
This morning at the first light of dawn, I caught the fragrance of spring on a wisp of a breeze. Heaven in a moment. Nevermind that it is only early March or that there are days of rain and cold in front of us. Pay attention only to the blossoms and the touch of green on spikes of brown branches. Pay attention to the warmth of the sweatshirt hanging in the sunlight streaming through the window. Notice that dawn is earlier and sunset is later. Taste the spring asparagus and artichokes. Close your eyes and know that summer is only a season away.
