The calendar said it was almost spring,
but snow covered the bright daffodil blooms.
Weather is unpredictable;
Mother Nature is a Mistress of Surprises!
My mind says that spring
should always bloom in my body,
but the aches of age
blot out that lovely wish.
Life, too, is unpredictable;
the Creator sometimes surprises me.
being more loving than Mother Nature,
always comforts and carries me through.
