Smells of rain on sidewalks,
Of sun soaking up water droplets
And evaporating them into wind,
Of atmospheric changes.
Here and there enlivening
The winter-scape which begins
Its fade into spring tide.
Happiness, playfulness, and joy
Peeking through the unfolding leaves
Of the flowering fruit trees.
Like flowing floating yards and yards of
Swiss dotted fabric blooming into
A multitude of blossoming almond flowers.
And the flowing of the sap,
With the lengthening of days,
Comes the celebration of life.
