The first of May

It's the first of May and Earth has cast off her winter white in the northern hemisphere. A chorus of birds and a cool spring rain herald the coming days of warm and plenty, drawing us out to plant, to trim, all in anticipation of the harvest. Creatures creep out into the sun, chasing away winter's bone chilling season with promise of a sultry summer.

And yet Spring is capricious, clinging to winter's chill for just a while longer, reminding us that there are aspects of this world, of nature, over which we have no control. A last fickle frost sweeps over, causing new furled leaves to momentarily retract... and then the sun comes out and we dance again.


  1. Happy Beltane! We're all jumping the fire tonight, burning some rejection letters, and drinking some may wine. I hope you have a great day!

    1. Awesome! Now I'm inspired to have a Beltane fire too! :)

  2. Off-topic! I saw that you finished Dance with Dragons. Did you like? :-)

  3. Oooh, I want a Beltane fire!
    I'm one of those creatures creeping out into the sun. Mother nature stops by pretty often, though, to let me know who's in charge:)

  4. And good riddance to all that cold, even if it is necessary.


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
