spits of snow cripple garden centers


a day when spring planting fever
should be hitting the masses
time to poke around in the earth
and fill the holes
with goods from the garden center

with spits of snow
and chilling winds
pushing about
planting was far from my mind anyway

more of a hot chocolate
and huddle until spring gets here
kind of day

which has to be bad
for the garden centers
one less weekend
to push their wares

maybe tomorrow
in spite of the weather
i'll venture forth
and tap into the warmth
of a garden center greenhouse

oh how i long for
a warm spring shower
and the smell of earthworms
