May

It seems a distant point just now in the cold and damp evenings of West Georgia. It must seem even more remote in colder climates locked in ice and snow. The ground hog  made news this week. That pampered rodent of lore predicts as well as any I suppose. We’ll have an early spring according to General Beauregard Lee. And so, I recall the memories of Spring tonight.

When sweet privet blooms mingle in May’s honeysuckle breeze days of youth and innocence tease tears and come to me shaking pretence like a dust laden welcome mat. Years fall away. Swept into May leaving only the fragrance of a yesterday when all was well or so it seems today. There will come a time when just past the privet hedge all  our present troubles will loose their jagged edge. Memory is so gracious so very very kind. There is no greater healer than one May somewhere in time.

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?

    Nice Blog J . May is one of my most favorite months of the year. Can\’t wait to get past March. I am not one to wish my life away but this has been a hard winter for so many of us. Thankyou for stopping by and glad you were able to have a chuckel. Like you said , at a time like that who cares about spelling. Take care! Dianne 🙂

    I am ready for Spring to be here yesterday. The smell of Spring. I can\’t describe it, but it is great! It instantly gives you energy! Sadly, from where I am, it\’s about another 2 months away. Wouldn\’t seem so far away if only this white cold stuff would stop falling from the sky.
