….. is one of my favourite numbers.
I think this is the day in March when spring is supposed to have sprung! ( the jury’s out on that this year. )
At 11.02 GMT on Wednesday this week, the sun crossed the equator.
For the next 6 month, the days will be longer than the nights in the northern hemisphere.
Regardless of weather conditions and late blooming daffodils, I thought I would mark this time with a poem that I wrote as the earth was tilting towards winter last October.
A breakout day, slung low over a ridge choked with
clouds of chalk grey.
Light bulging up towards the eye of a storm.
Talons twitching – two kestrels wing south
on the whiff of a field mouse.
Still now, they swoop.
As the start of spring heralds a new phase in the natural world, I jotted down a few signpost ‘reminders’ for me as we enter it.
1.) Stay active in body and mind.
2.) Continue to write for the love of writing.
3.) Live always by BEing me first.
4.) Seek less and live more.
5.) Ride the wave that is today and enjoy it.
You too merry bloggers.
