A to Z Challenge: B is for Bloom

crocus“Bloom”

Hunching against frigid wind
Awaiting the end of Chicago’s
Harsh winter, I eagerly look
For Spring’s first blooms:
Crocus,
Daffodils,
Tulips.
Eternal reminders that
Days will grow longer
And warmer. Mother Nature
Will shake off the frost
And bloom once again in
Vivid hues,
Brilliant colors,
Delicate pastels.
North winds will give way
To southerly breezes and snowfall
to thunderstorms. But now I
await Spring’s first blooms.

    1. Wow, I can’t even imagine that. I didn’t grow up in Chicago, but when I was a kid we lived in Prescott, AZ, which is a mile high in the Rocky Mountains, so I knew all about snow from a young age. Thank you for stopping by.

  1. My favorite time of year! Until Autumn. 😉 This Winter has been on the strange side, hasn’t it? No snow in Jan or Feb, then of course it snowed on March 1st! Fickle Chicago weather! lol
