Easier






Spring is easier.
Light wakes up in the morning. It may be grey light, but nevertheless, it’s light.
Rain washes the sandy pavements, floods rinse small stones into the gutters.
Pushing the wheelchair is almost like a dance when there’s no snow and ice.
Feet won’t slip and slide.
No weighty loads on the back, getting rid of the heavy winter coat. Balls and chains loosen.
Hands aren’t freezing, the grip is only cold.
Tears don’t compose an icy sonata of pearls on the cheek.

Spring is easier in many ways.
Easier. Not easy.

Yes - longer days and sun dresses...are you a musician also? I love music but have zero talent. I buy CDs, havve many old records in my mom's house in Florida...

I like this image - iot dances and I wish I could read the notes - so again I remain en.crypted.

Hope is what everybody needs, Ellen.

I play some piano and guitar, John, but these notes are for drums, a collage of different beat.

Spring seems easier, but it's still hard for many. Changes tear some people apart. But I know, Finnish winter can be hard too. Very hard!

SusuPetal said...

Maybe spring wouldn't feel easier if there hadn't been a hard winter, HPY?

Mick said...

With snow in the forecast, I can't consider spring at all!

SusuPetal said...

Neither can I, Mick...

reminds me of canada. was there for 5 years - studying.

yep ... love spring and fall where i get to wear not so thick jacket with style :-)

SusuPetal said...

Yes, Azer, I believe the climate can be similar in Canada and Finland.
Thick jackets are not cool!
