The Smell of Spring
I was outside today and could feel the breeze. The breeze carried it with it a smell so sweet that I could recognize it anywhere; the smell of grass.
Now don't laugh. I know it seems funny, the smell of grass. But when you take in mind that we only have up here in my area only about six to ten weeks of spring, you understand how prescious it is, and how short lived it is. Soon, grass will also bring trees and their leaves, lots of wild flowers that bring a life all their own. We will be able to grow something. We can play outside in our shorts and play in the water.
The sun is warmest in the Spring/Summer weeks, and the night breeze is just the right temperature. You can hold your hand beneath the golden sun and actually feel the warmth it has to offer instead of accompanied by a chill and dim light.
We are live like the cherry blossoms up here. We have a period of short weeks, and then it all goes away to the great beyond, welcoming another long winter.
So here's to Spring, the warm weather and happiness that it brings!
