It feels like an entire season has come and gone since
I last posted. My beloved Spring, gleaming with hope and
light and glory, finally did arrive, in all its budding beauty.
Suddenly, city streets sprouting pretty, pastel petals
made once barren pathways to work happily bearable!
I recall the almond blossoms,
scattered across the Cretan countryside,
fragrant confetti, dotting the meadows
with scented cheer, and I long for the day
to wander amid such a paradise, again.
Until then, Summer is scheduled to arrive on time,
here in southern Ontario, tomorrow, Monday, June 20,
2016. As such, Spring has ensured that its successor
be made to feel welcome, and thus, has already
seen to hot, smouldering, temps - a show of
utmost warmth and hospitality, wouldn't you say?
