Tulips erupting

Writing Prompt: Spring

February is nearly over. I'm not sad to bid farewell to the shortest month of the year. 

February is nearly over. I’m not sad to bid farewell to the shortest month of the year. Its plethora of anniversaries, waves of grief and joy, tapped me out. Just like we learned in grammar school, March is roaring like a lion. Yesterday it was 60 degrees, and tomorrow’s forecast calls for snow. My tulips have erupted. This nutty weather may nip them in the bud. Last night for the first time in months, I sat outside under the clear midnight blue sky, speckled with a few clouds, the moon waxing and readying to welcome a glorious Spring. April showers await.

    • I think each season makes us yearn for the next. We both welcome and mourn their passing, we revel in and despise their arrival, and then we morbidly anticipate their death so the next season can be born.
