Spring Chalk Thoughts

Inspiration for this impromptu poem (work in progress) came after a coffer run to a local shop.

I stood before a board
wondering what to write.
Did I have a favorite 
you'd want to hear about.

 The board was filled
with random thoughts in chalk
about those spring activities
wished for all  winter long.

Ride a bike
dig in the dirt
paddle a lake
paint a picture
eat outside
and maybe 
even puddle jump.

I guess I'll write...
find spring scenes 
that add some color to my life.


Lucky me
 did not stray too far.
found these scenes  
right outside my door.
