February Flowers

 I waited patiently for a sign that the long winter nights were losing time

I closed my eyes hoping that when they opened, umber, caramel, and wheat would be  replaced by the color spectrum – I was not disappointed

 

 

Both inside and out Gaia’s internal clock recorded the seconds until a flower burst from its slumber

Even a coating of white could not diminish my joy
