My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

In the Meantime: As I Wait for Spring.



I’m getting soooooooooo tired of dark and cloudy days here in BC.

But one thing about living here; spring comes very early! Not this early, but hopefully soon.

I love winter but not when it’s a series of dreary days, as has been the norm here for weeks now.

In the meantime, thought I’d share another sunny scene/haiku, from the archives.


This one with a spring theme.



Happy Weekend. Happy Spring….bring it on!  😉

  1. I’ll bet we will be seeing some green by next month. My mom in Oklahoma says flowers are up in the yard there.

  2. Geraldine,
    This is a glorious photo – nothing makes a person feel uplifted like the sight of the first fresh tulip shoots.
    Spring will come to you soon – I remember how spring arrived in February in Vancouver – it felt fabulous to me, having lived in Saskatchewan most of my life.
    The weather is feeling deceptively spring like here, but I think we’ll have winter for some time yet. (Which is really a good thing.)

  3. Oh, great! I can hardly wait…even though we’ve had little snow, not so much gray and more sunshine than normal. Spring is just better! 🙂

  4. Hi Sandy, Well it sure would beat the grey and brown scenes here day after day…Oklahoma must be pretty warm.

    Hi Brenda, Yeah, I know the feeling. When I first moved to Toronto many years ago, I was just amazed by the flowers along the boulevards in early spring. We aren’t use to that, us Prairie people, are we? Sask. usually doesn’t get much spring really, just winter, lots of slush and then summer seems to arrive after that very quickly. And I agree, winter IS a good thing, seasonal weather for a particular area and snow but it’s all changing now in that respect and fast. Not a good thing.

    Hi Sue, Nice to see you again. Spring will be great when it arrives. Thanks for stopping in.

    Happy week, G 🙂

  5. Great photo and I love the haiku too. I’m ready for spring too.
