Past Present Future

Last summer’s leaf rewinds time
New buds fast forward it to spring

But linger not in either place

Embrace today

This moment will not come again.

    1. We’ll see you then. 🙂 Of course, spring in Alberta comes on its own schedule and seldom the same from one year to the next. On the sunny side of the house it may arrive in late April, while north-facing parts are still deep in snow. The poplars may not leaf out until May. A quirky country to say the least. It certainly keeps life interesting.

      1. Figuratively, yes, a hint of spring. Literally, well, that’s another matter altogether as spring dances in and out for weeks on end, tempting, teasing and downright confusing plants, animals and humans alike. 🙂
