#One Week - Spring '13 - Waiting

Where are you?

I'm waiting. 

Days and days and weeks and weeks.

But nothing.


I see you in the soil.

Purples and blues.

White lampshades lighting your way.

I hear you in the trees.

The warm prooo prooo of the wood pigeon.

A welcoming call.


You elude flower and leaf and birdsong.

You sing a melancholy verse.

Of rain and hail and snow. 

Sometimes you dive through the grey.

A quick hello.

Then away. 


I wonder if you've given up.

Had enough.

Can't be bothered.

I worry you're changing.

What did I do to upset you so?


You were consistent and generous.

You wore a smile.

I know what you're going to say.

'It's not you it's me.'

I'm sorry.

Please come back.

Please.


This is the second day of the seasonal linky One Week. Over the next few days (until Friday) I'll be posting a photograph(s) and a few words that diarises and distills my experience of spring '13. Take a peep at the details here. You can join in for one, two ... or the full five days. And don't forget to add #oneweek on Twitter, and comment on each others posts...

  1. Another beautifully written post. And stunning photographs. I believe the sunshine is due to make an appearance this week. It's been a long time coming but I still reserve the right to whine about it being too hot if the temperature rises above 20 degrees :-)

    1. Oh, I am so similar to you - I can only deal in temperature ranges from 18 - 22 degrees. Maybe I should move to the Canaries then? Thank you very much lovely :o).
