Cracked Pot – Repost

Thought this one was appropriate to repost with yet another blast of snow forecasted for Western New York tonight and tomorrow; and, also, as I sink further into the sweet lunacy that seems to be unavoidable as I finish a second novel.  Apologies for my absence from your blogs – hopefully, soon I will have more free time and mind-energy! Thank you for your patience.

Looking for a little relief.

The pot is cracked from the cold,
the lavender scented like summer;
spring bulbs show impatience
while knowing they must wait.

  1. Such beauty in your painting and your words, Diane. That little robin is adorable…so excited that you’re nearing the finish line in your novel, too! Stay warm and hopefully spring will show her face soon for you! Many hugs! xoxo


    • Thanks so much, Lauren! I love the North American robins, but the English ones are just so sweet! The novel is finished … well, it has reached its conclusion … just a few weeks of tidying things up, etc. Snow is almost gone and things are even greening up and those bulbs are poking through. Amazing how quickly spring can shirk off such a long lingering winter. XO ♥


  2. Oh I love this Diane and have just walked around the garden that I am currently caring for…your painting is a perfect depiction of life out there right now. Take as long as you need for your novel…we’ll hold you in our hearts till you have time. Big hug. Xxx


    • Thank you, Jane! We had a great deal of snow last weekend, but since it has warmed up a little and most of the snow is gone. It is amazing how quickly nature shakes off the long winter and wakes up with little bursts of green and soon those special spring colors. Thank you for your understanding and support. Blessings. XO ♥


    • Thanks, Ina! Suppose to get wet heavy snow this afternoon, evening and into tomorrow morning. We just started seeing grass again. It’s suppose to get much warmer, though, so it should melt quickly. I’m excited about writing the last lines … that I know where I’m going with it. So, off I go! 🙂 XO ♥


    • Hi, Susan, and thank you! I’m fine … just rather in the thick of finishing my sequel to “A House Near Luccoli”. Hope all is well with you. See you have published an e-book of poems and I just downloaded. Look forward to reading. Blessings. XO ♥
