A whiff of April

The frost begins to melt away and the fog makes way for clear blue skies.

Puffy white clouds emerge and a radiant yellow sun smiles its best smile.

Roses, jasmine and bougainvillea bloom like they’ve never before,

The breeze is warm and the afternoons sultry.

The ice and gloom has drifted away to make room for

Reds and yellows, oranges and greens.

There is spring and childhood nostalgia in the air

Bringing joy that reflects in eyes that sparkle behind shades.

The days are longer and the nights fragrant and cool.

A whiff of April brings with it summer,

A summer that warms my heart too.
