Daffodils Awake!

Little sprouts of green
Inching toward a sky of blue
Daffodils awake!

Last week, I was surprised to see the daffodils sprouting. They were sleeping under the largest pile of snow in the yard, tucked under the leaves of fall. I thought it’d be a while before they’d make an appearance. As soon as the snow melted, the sprouts appeared. Now I watch them grow and wait to see their flowers. The daffodils are sure to keep up the good fight, even if winter hangs on for a while.

Discovering Duluth – Congdon Park

We recently took an easy hike through Congdon Park, which is hidden in a residential neighborhood on the east side of Duluth, between north Hawthorne Road and 34th Avenue East.

The waters of Tischer Creek moved low and slow.
A waterfall trickled down rock formations.
The sun shone high above.

Trick or Treat Chorus

Doorbell keeps ringing,
Children are singing,
Trick or Treat chorus,
Sure not to bore us.

Costumes are scary,
Makes us feel wary,
Kids do not care much,
What looks upset us.

They like sweet candy,
Makes them feel dandy,
Getting the most sweets,
Is quite a fun feat.

Once they get back home,
To rest and not roam,
Plop down their treasure,
Count up and measure.

Daytimes pass quickly,
Children feel sickly,
If Mom denies some,
She is no more fun.

Kids get so busy,
Causes a tizzy,
Forgetting the fuss,
The rest is for us!
