yellow crocuses

a month later
than expected
if they were planned

this squirrel-planted surprise
threads beneath my window
in a thin, military row–

small defiant suns
shouting through frost

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    What a long winter this year. Alice

    • Yes, but the crocuses are finally saying phooey–we’re late enough already. I love these little rodent surprises. I never plant them, but invariably a patch shows up somewhere unexpectedly on my lawn. Love it!

        That’s one of the great things about bulbs. They have a tendency to migrate. We have irises and tulips and a few others scattered around our front yard. Every year they pop up in a slightly different place.

  2. Ah ‘small defiant suns’ ~ love that final verse Susan 🙂
