The grey clouds in the west
seen through grey branches, trunks.
Unzipping the jacket, unbuttoning the sweater.
The new slant of light, the breeze.
Now, where are the colored eggs?

I love the expression “a certain slant of light”, or “a new slant of light”. Such phrases always remind me of Emily Dickinson and her “tell the truth but tell it slant, success in circuit lies…”
Spring’s truth is a slant truth – we’ll still be catching it out of the corner of our eye for a while. Then? Color and fragrance! I think everyone is ready.
Right about color and fragrance next! There was a whiff the other day – but no blossoms in sight.
Neat that you picked up on the slant. Tis the truth – life on this planet is all about slant – our lucky tilt is our reality!
“Unzipping the jacket”. That really invokes a lot of imagination and opens my mind. What beautiful words throughout this post! Thank you.

That means a lot from someone who honors his Muse so well, you – the ultimate story-crafter.
