I love this poem – it reminds me of my funny, little grandmother who was rural -almost primitive in her wild, glorious way. #poem #aprilpoetrymonth #grandmother
It’s a quiet sort of day. The middle of March – gray clouds and mild temperatures in Minnesota. The hint of Spring coming on. It’s the sort of day I like best. I’m so glad I grew up in the mid-west with the four seasons and there is something thrilling about a big snow storm, a glorious Autumn day and a Summer day when all is bright and the flowers are blooming but for me I like those mild March days where everything seems to calm down a bit. The day today is calm as if it knew not much was expected of it. Nature teaches us we need our rest – we need days to sit and look at the ducks bobbing in the water and days where there’s not much to do except pull out the Scrabble board or read a good book. Maybe because I’m an introvert – but I like these calm, quiet March days best. #march #ducks #marchdays #quietdays #introvert
