a summer's day

not so far beyond
the bare-limbed chill on the wind
lies a summer's day

Nicely captured. Expectation. Time for winter to fold away I think.

Well, I am looking ahead for sure. Love the way those bare limbs are shaking their hands toward the sky.

Very nice combination of words and photo.
