Bundled, For What?

Glorious morn. Unfolding in such a way

that I hopped outside bundled so tight

to find dripping snow and ice.

What us that! Warm sun upon my face!

Oh, I could get used to this!

No longer does this scarf need to be wrapped so tight.

No longer does this hat need to be. Oh, my!

It seems spring is on the horizon!

Thawing and releasing all those layers of clothes.

To be free to roam outside

in just a few glorious layers.

It’s about time!

When Those Clouds Part. ❤

the skies are erupting

in brilliant shades

it’s true

parting those grey dense clouds

to send the day off

in fiery hues

full of brilliant orange and yellows

pinks to tame and mellow

a dust of violet mixed with blue

a painters dream

a palette supreme

causing a pause at the end of the day

to watch the colors change


Love, blessings, and gratitude, 💕 Carrie

Miss Maple Wintering

Lovely branches bare and wide

reaching toward the winter sky.

Prepping for spring to arrive.

Waiting patiently. So am I.

Ready.

Ready for a little more

                       laughter in my day.

Ready for a little more

                    sunshine on my face.

Ready for a little more

                  socializing, too.

Oh, how this pandemic

                  (mixed with winter)

                   opened me for a little more.

Are you ready for a little more, too?
