May Day

Finland, 1968, photo by George F. Mobley


swift change
turbulent winds
winter's last breath, clouds cry
spring celebration gone astray
may-day

  3. Our weather is all over the place to as it switches from early spring to spring-is-here. But by May it will be stable and hot. I love the umbrella photo.

  7. May! Keep your turbulent winds and clouds all alike
    For it had better be sunny when we take a hike
    For spring's about warmth and tenderness too
    How else am I going to test my kangaroo shoe

    1. Warm sunny days, that I would like
      could be fun to even ride a bike
      maybe, even one built for two
      wearing a pair of new shoes???

    2. I was at Stafford Ray's place and I had a deja vu: I had seen that picture before. And now I'm here again and there it is. I thought I was getting old. I've ordered some sunshine.

      brightly and sometimes you see the most amazing rainbows.
