Happy Sprinter!


Uncertain spring,

no longer winter.

Transition’s the only

permanent thing.

So why should we wait

to lift up our hearts?

Let us huddle together

and celebrate Sprinter!

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”

~George Santayana

    I, for one, am reveling in sprinter, having lived in (very hot, very humid) Florida for many years. Each day I take note of which trees and bushes are showing signs of growth, and which flowers are displaying their colors. (The magnolias seem particularly magnificent this year!) I even take pleasure in the yo-yoing temperatures. (A few days from now, will we be wearing coats or sweaters or neither? Such fun variety!) Note to Weather Man: please hold off the heat of summer. Give me more sprinter!! (And thanks, Mitch, for the smile-maker poem and new term for this in-between season!)

  7. Considering it’s 24 degrees in MI this morning… I’m looking forward to some summery weather. In other words…I’m hoping your “Sprinter” is fleet footed. Whether it is prose or poetry… you express everything so well. PS… Thanks for following my blog.

    Ah, spring! Today is the first day of spring (in my Hemisphere, at any rate). So, naturally, the temperature has dropped 25 degrees and snow is on its way! In other words, spring has arrived but has failed to spring. Still, I have it on good faith (and I do mean faith) that it will. So Happy Sprinter!
