Old Friend

Old friend,

I haven’t seen you for so long.

You have hidden yourself away,

a self-imposed hiatus.

Do you not hear the call?

The Sun woos once again;

it is time to take up your burden

and enter the land of the living.

    Oh this is nice and personal–I was so hoping to see the sundial, but I s’pose it’s buried, eh?

      It just rose above its circumstances this week, and I can see its head. Soon, soon…

        “Rose above its circumstances”–wow, I LOVE that. Can hardly wait for my sundial–you realize, if I ever get north to see you, the first thing I’ll want is to view it (even before refreshments)–and maybe you could take a pic of me by it….dreamin’ is a free vacation!

    I think this old friend misses you too.

    It took me a little bit to figure out what it was, and I couldn’t believe it was a chair! Really showed how deep your snow still is up north. So surreal, our trees are flowering with mad frenzy. How diverse is nature!

      This is the latest spring I can remember – and we have had record amounts of snow, to top it all off. Let me tell you, when I get out in my garden in shirt sleeves, I might just have to celebrate!!! πŸ˜‰

    Oh my gosh, that one is buried deep.

    Oh that poor chair / bench! Praying it gets set free soon . . .and sat on too! Thanks, Melody!
