Letter (2/22)

-
The lilacs are coming - little red fists at the end of branches
In the square the magnolias are inflating their fuzzy heads - it will be
all fresh and clean soon - fountains will be on again and the rain -
-
Today was clear until a wall of black clouds brought snow
I was watching the pattern of light change against the house across
the street - it looked like a clearing sun in a forest -
-
...that uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach again?
Would it be too presumptuous to ask you to wait until May? - the
bluebells will be blooming by mid-April...I don't want to miss them again-
