Signs of Spring
Jennifer Gurney


Blissful spring day
Rain taps on the metal roof
Watering my life


Jubilantly I
Open the windows to let
The outside in


Springtime sunshine
Clears the cobwebs of winter
Away for a year


Geese honk overhead
Announcing their arrival
For the new season

I'm hoping for a little more of that sunshine you mentioned! I, too, opened the windows to let the outside in when it was warm. A good way to express it.
