Mist Hides the Mountains – Day 16-


A mist hides the mountains
beyond the river scene.
Little Johnny Jump-ups
fading now among the green.
Springtime in the Ozarks
where it’s really not a joke
that woodpeckers jackhammer
on a tall dead white oak.
The fern stems are beginning
to sprout into a frond
as little frogs go hopping
on the bank of the pond.

    I know its supposed to be spring, but will be glad when along with the sun shinning we would also get the warmth it will provide, feel warm and the flowers start blooming. Very windy here foe the past week
