when the world is mud-luscious
when the world is puddle-wonderful
Thanks to e.e. cummings for lines from his poem --
and pardon my enthusiasm. Winter has been so difficult for all of us. But today -- just a few moments ago -- the sun was shining and my daffodils were dancing in a soft, warm breeze.
Winter dulls the senses. Gray days and bleak landscapes trigger some atavistic urge to stay inside closed doors, cocooned in pursuit of indoor activities. But Spring! Take a deep breath of life returning to the earth.
That's what this tiny bee is doing, back to the camera and wallowing inside the sunny yellow of daffodil.
Spring has started its sashay across our land, south to north. Open its gifts when it arrives at your door.
