Spring! Spring! Viva Spring!

Updated on March 16, 2012

Sounds Of Spring

Step Aside for Mother Nature

Photosynthesis is taking place. Nothing or nobody can change it. Step aside for Mother Nature. Snow birds here in Florida and hitting the trail back to the north. Yes! The slow drivers are going back to their summer home. The temperature of our blood is rising and visions of fishing and drinking beer around the campfire flashing in our mind. Beaches and vacation planning, pull us out of our winter cave.


Hair Dressers and Barking Dogs

Spring inspires us to get out of the house and spruce up the yard and plant blooming things. Then the doldrums of summer come stealing in and we day dream.

We dream of winning the lottery,

or writing that novel in the back of our mind.

Even my hair dresser writes poetry. (Each head a palette, disheveled in my hands, transformed into a thing of beauty). She will keep her day job.

The mailman sings opera and dreams of being on American Idol, delivering packages and spraying mace on barking dogs.



Let Us Rejoice!

We, here on hubpages write our little hearts out, and we read aspiring thoughts from other little hearts.

We rush to read feedback, and search for a graceful not too gushy compliment to encourage our fellow hubbers.

But let us all rejoice!

Birds are returning and the trees are filled with music.

It’s time to build!

It’s time to spring clean.

New life is springing up.

Blossoms are opening fragrant in the breeze.

Streams are murmuring.

Days will get longer and the spirit of winter goes silent once more.

VIVA Spring!

VIVA Spring!

      Ann, What a happy, joyful, upbeat treat awaits readers who click onto your opening video! Here, it's the spring peepers that are so resounding in their nightly chorus that they're drowning out the chipping sparrows, ovenbirds and warblers. The sounds nevertheless are all welcome.

      Thank you for sharing, and welcome to HubPages,

      Derdriu

      P.S. Which sounds are your least and most favorite?

      Yes, Sueswan. I have the fever! I am going to get a new hair do, and plant something. Maybe a banana tree.

      Derdriu, I think I'll try to make an mp3 of that bird clip. It so relaxes me.

      What sounds do I like? Well, here in Florida when my windows are open, I can hear those big white beach birds flying around, and outside my kitchen window I have a family of nervous sparrows in a tree. Then I feed the cardinals, and blue jays. Gosh, I like them all. They make me happy.

      Thanks for the visit.
