The Big Chill

mail box flowers
Yellow flowers teasing
Blossoms shining in the sun
Tonight they shiver
Returning cold weather chills
Springtime buds will wait awhile

daffodils 4

  2. I had to chuckle…you have the daffodils I alluded to in my piece…but wherever we are your poem reveals spring temperatures can tease out the buds and then zap them with cold…an exciting time 🙂
