The Spring winds have arrived. They come after the air warms
The mountains surrounding us are still chilled and full of snow
They are a delight to see with the sun shining on them–
But, they too, need to warm and melt—-bringing water to cities, towns, and farms
Therefore, the wind blows.
Sometimes bringing more snow (The Universe is very thoughtful….it would not be good to have the snowmelt ALL AT ONCE)
Sometimes bringing rain;
Helping the trees bring the sap from the roots to the tips of branches.
Wind…,here where we live, blows from now until the middle of June (or so)
Bringing freezing cold, dusty warm, heart-stopping beauty back to our land.
