Impatient in Iowa

Elusive spring
buried beneath snow.
Monotone whitened rural scene
minus crocus, lilacs,
and red breasted robins.
Brightened only by weathered barn
and newly painted crimson birdhouse,
daredevil cheerful bracelet
on snow laden tree limb.
Old man winter,
still balking at retirement.

    I can relate to this…definitely impatient in Iowa! I also have a red birdhouse which offers a spot of brightness in this dirty snow and mud season.

    Loved that picture AND the words you were inspired to write about it.
