This winter, that seems to not want to end…
To continue on, in its ignorant bliss…
Taxing overpowering afflictions… the fever of spring.
Expecting us to wait, to postpone, to procrastinate.
Silly winter, in your white blanket of self.
You, today encountered a stronger force.
Throw at me, freezing rain and snow, sleet even too.
blech I say to you, be off with you. I will wait no longer.
To soar above fluffy clouds
My first solo flight
splendid landing completed
face beaming brightly
final checks complete
engine sputters to silence
three more faces beam
Roommates jumping high
Fists pumping above their heads
Take that Ma Nature
With your incessant winter
