    Very good, Ed. "trickles" is an excellent choice and beautifully placed.

    weathered siding
    snow leaves the barn
    one drip at a time

    Wonderful image, Ed! I agree with Bill about "trickles" - perfect word choice. I like the implied time lapse with the "mound of snow" trickling.

    spring cleaning
    the slow gutter murmur
    of yesterday's rain

    a sleepy murmur
    from her carseat

    spring warmth
    seeping, slowly in the bone
    flowers waking

    Nice one, Ed...and how well I know that feeling of watching the last mound of snow trickle away.

    Were you looking up my driveway when you wrote this? It's so "right on". Spring in Northern Wisconsin.

    Ed, I really enjoyed your Spring images! I agree with Kat, but from St. Paul, MN.

    The green park statue
    Posing on brown Springtime grass
    Speaks to snow patches
