Spring Floats

Mother Nature teases us with hints of Mardi Gras. Tiny flares of yellow and purple dot the brown barren leaf carpet as vivid crocus blooms appear among green throw rugs of creeping phlox. Her spring decor will be awesome as always.

Punxsutawney Phil may have dismayed the East Coast with warnings of six more weeks of winter, but Ripley County Romeo disagreed with that dreary forecast; his shadow didn’t come out to play. Mother Earth seems bored with winter’s monotones as she pulls colorful spring accessories from seasonal storage.

Wispy clouds swirl across a canvas
of blue sky;
Flags dance in the fickle breeze as it
waltzes by.
Could be a time for philosophizing,
but why,
When sun and earth tempt us in ways
one can’t deny?

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Spring is coming!

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
