Waiting While Winter Wearies...

The motivation to spring-clean in spite of the frigid temps has to do with words like;
 garden, flowers, sunshine, bird-song, green, warmth, earth etc:)

Meanwhile, birdies are getting their feather-coats fluffed with fierce, frosty fingers!
....and earth is a wide, wild ballroom

Earth is a wide,white-washed ballroom
Fallen stars frolic on fields sealed in snow   
Mother Nature's apron cups blooms
Eager to spill into spring’s flower-show

Summer seems far and forgotten
Lost, like a land in a mythical place
We wait for green words like ‘garden’
To salt our speech with its flowery grace

Purple and pink paradises
Wink from a world in white wastelands contained
Earth must withhold its surprises
Until the will of old winter has waned
