NaPoWriMo Day 13
Our winter blankets put away
the ones we can control
then one last unexpected covering found
as greens again turn white
and warm temperatures turn to cold.
Just another temporary delay
geese continue their northbound trip
trees pushing out their leafing buds
and grass leaves behind winter brown
poking through the blanket’s rips.
Trickles of water run down the road
mud puddles form on the grassy knoll
potted plants await their transfer
to garden beds of blackened earth
for now at home behind sunlit windows.
I embrace the season’s change.
