Can't Stop Spring

Fourth year of drought. 
Only one year of water left. 
That's what the scientists are saying.
And yet. . .

Plants still explode across the landscape in fiery bursts of color like fireworks lighting up the night sky

And stand in in-your-face defiance of these grim prognosticators of doom.

They still sing a cheery song of immutable determination and faith

And spread their arms wide,
inviting you to join them in their joyful celebration of life.


  1. One year of water left? Yikes! That's some awful news for these plants, but yet they bloom. Guess there's enough water today and that's what counts.

  2. I like that the plants are spreading their arms wide and inviting us in the celebration of life. I hope the drought is eased with some rain for you. I know there are parts of the world that are in a real crisis. Jackie http://familytrove.blogspot.com/
