Yes Spring Hope

A   L   O   H   A  !
You can cut all the flowers but 
you cannot keep Spring from coming.
        Pablo Neruda

“Is the spring coming?" he said. 
"What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and 
the rain falling on the sunshine...”
            Frances Hodgson Burnett 
  The Secret Garden

Nice Place For A Beer
What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.
           Kobayashi Issa

If we had no winter, 
the spring would not be so pleasant: 
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, 
prosperity would not be so welcome.
                             Anne Bradstreet


Love You,

Smiling. And thank you - despite the fact that I am revelling in early signs that Autumn is almost here.
