BW12: March Equinox

Nature is putting on a spectacular show as we transition into Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Patricia Cisco's poem captures the season.  It's also Autumn in the southern Hemisphere with the season's fall leaves of orange and yellow and red.   I have John Denver's You Fill Up My Senses running through my head so your mission is find titles or stories that resonate with the sights, sounds, and/or smells of the season. 

Song Of March

With winter's footprints in the past,
and snows begin to melt at last.

With longer days and shorter nights, 
the wayward winds of March take flight.

Four winds she holds within her grip,
then hurls them from her fingertip.

Her woolly, fleecy clouds of white,
she sets in skies of blue delight.

Her wild bouts of gusty breezes
roar through valleys, hills, and trees.

That high pitch whistling song she sings
awakens earth and flowering things.

She tears a hole in heaven's sky
so sun can shine and rain can cry.

She gently calms as spring draws near, 
as blooming daffodils appear.

She welcomes April showers in, 
then gathers up her dwindling winds.
Now her long journey home begins,

knowing she'll be back this way, 
upon a cold, late winter's day, 

when nights grow short
and days grow long.

Listen for her whistling song!

  1. I didn't get a chance to come and check in last week, so I added last week's and this week's books to this list.

  2. I’ve linked my review of Ehud Barack’s “My Country, My Life” which I read earlier this year. Haven’t posted for a few weeks, but I’ve finished reading Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules for Life”, an extraordinary and profound book. Peterson’s wisdom is timely and should be on everyone’s reading list.

    This week I’ve started reading “At the Entrance to the Garden of Eden”, by Yossi Klein Halevi.
