The future. It comes as surely as the sun rises in the east. This long, long snow-covered winter seems to have no end. But this we know. Spring is in our future.
The calendar may say it is spring, but the weather is deceiving. Yet under the blanket of snow that spreads so willingly over our yard here at Mama’s Empty Nest, I know there are spring flowers just waiting to burst forth.
This week’s Word Press photo challenge is ‘future tense.’ Right now spring seems like a future tense, but it will arrive. We just must be patient.
So today, on this best day of the year, winter may rule the day, but spring is in my heart.
And this photo of spring from the past is yet in the future.
“O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?” ~Percy Bysshe Shelley
