Open the curtains
Pull up the blind
Open the window
Bring in the outside.

Mellifluous birdsong
Floats in on the air
Sweetly scented with cut grass
Being mowed somewhere.

Open your mouth
Breathe deeply. Exhale.
The air you are breathing
Seems totally stale.

Head toward the hall –
Throw the door wide
Let Spring and the freshness
Rush inside.


Where did the snow go Mr Tumnus?


This morning felt like the first Spring day of 2013. Bright and airy without being fresh and cold. I stepped off the bus with a ‘spring’ in my step simply enjoying being outside in the air without being pummelled by rain and hail.

But even though the beautiful day made me feel light-hearted, I also felt a little sad as I realised another winter had passed with no snow.
