Daffodil shoots in Jan

warm southern breeze –
whispers to the treetops –
spring will be here soon
***
old oaks stretch and yawn-
wiggling their deep rooted toes –
is it time to wake up?
***
each year –
promises made and kept –
spring will return

Its not all that unusual to see the daffodil shoots this time of year and since we really haven’t had any winter weather to speak of this year or last, I shouldn’t have been surprised to see these in the garden today. But it was a nice gift of the seasons as I helped my mom to the car – errand day today!
