Temps rise

Green tendrils peek out

Rain showers

Signs of Spring.

A snowstorm

Blankets the ground

Melting rapidly

Signs of Winter.

Back and forth

White and green

Rain and snow

A bit of Spring – a bit of Winter.

Never easy

Seasons overlap

Winter is leaving –

Spring is arriving!

  1. Back and forth is a perfect explanation.

    1. Maybe this year it is “sliding into spring” as “slip-sliding away” lyrics are in my head this morning! 🙂

  2. Hey Fran, I think our slices could be companion texts today! I SO get this! Here’s to warmer days ahead.

    1. So true, Paula. I love your
      “My ears drank in
      the gurgling
      of the spring melt”

  3. Love the back and forth in this poem. We are all ready for spring, but this may be one of those years when we go directly to summer! Poor daffodils.

    1. Thanks, Diane. As if the weather would just make up its mind. The last snow. The last real snow. The last measurable snow. The almost last snow. Hmmm. Fake News for sure! And yes, poor daffodils!

  4. I love the simplicity of this poem but the imagery that accompanies it! I was just thinking about the overlap of spring and winter last night!

    1. Thanks, Jenna. The forecast says spring for two days and then lists snow again. And the slice began!

  5. Time for the overlap to end and be just one thing – SPRING. Right now we are in the sunshine/rain cycle. Better than the snow/sunshine cycle. Spring is pushing winter out of the picture.

    1. They are so close together . . . I’m not sure that there is a winner YET! However, I’m hoping for no snow in MAY this year for a change!

  6. We are definitely in that “two steps froward, one step back” seasonal transition. I get more and more inpatient for Spring to be truly here with each step back.

    1. Adrienne,
      Maybe if I think of it more as a waltz, it won’t seem quite so disagreeable. I, too, am impatient!

    I love how you share the transitions from Winter to Spring as a back and forth. It certainly is very true for this year!

    1. I’m not sure why I’m noticing the 30 degree temperature swing from day to day – less patience? Or just ready to move on? Thanks for commenting!

  8. It’s definitely been a back and forth time and you captured it beautifully in this poem. I’m hopeful we don’t go backwards too much and spring moves on forward!

    1. I’m going with the onward, upward and optimistic. Forward, March! Spring is HERE!

  9. SOOO ready for spring! Love the poem and imagery here, Fran 🙂

    1. It’s not even April. I’m totally fooling myself here. It just seems like gloomy, icky, cruddy winter has already occupied tooooooo much space!

  10. I wish spring would hurry!!! Back and forth…white and green. Yep, that’s how it is right now.

  11. Isn’t this the truth?! I have experienced far too many transitions into spring like this. Fortunately this year, it has just been a painfully S-L-O-W transition into spring. The back-and-forth like your poem describes is torturous though – so glad that hasn’t been our experience in MT.
