The Cold May Breeze

Honey's nose is twitching 
as the breeze blows over her
coming through the open door,
ruffling her fur.

The sun is brightly shining
on this glorious day in May.
The breeze is still a tad too cold
but tolerated anyway.

The scents of springtime blossoms 
permeate the air.
I'll leave it open in spite of the chill
and a sweater I will wear.

The breeze comes off the ocean
making the leaves dance on the trees.
I'll enjoy it despite my allergies 
that usually make me sneeze.

Winter was long and frigid,
now gladly left in the past.
Honey and I are enjoying the day,
Spring is here at last !

    You're having cold breezes in May up in BC? The temperature reached 32c here in New Jersey over the weekend. This is a nice write.

    A lady's best friend... her dog! (I presume.) This is delightful, Francine. Nicely rhymed with a pleasing cadence, and playful imagery, (except for your allergies!) Well done!! :)

    What a shame your allergies emerge just as the blossoms come to life, Francine. I know how much you love the warmer weather and I hope you can replace that sweater with a swimsuit soon. (Thanks for letting me know about the error in that poem. My mind is not too clear these days, but it was my mistake.) Love, Carolyn
