Triumph

piercing cold decay              
triumphantly emerging
vigor springs forth fresh

liquid moves fluid
freed from frozen slumber deep
awaiting spring's green

I took these photographs earlier today walking in my yard and down the road. A few flurries fell, but most of the snow has gone liquid and a few green sprouts have pushed up. The triumph of spring has begun!

This my response to the last prompt for Photography 101, “triumph.”

Pop Of Color?

Muddy,
     melting,
          dreary 
               wetness
punctuated
         by 
       a
           pecking,
                   poking       jab 
                                 of red.

This post is in response to the Photography 101 prompt “Pop of Color.”

Here in New York State’s Hudson Valley there’s not much color popping this time of year. Even the fire hydrant across the street from my home looks drab, so once again I’ve relied on my neighbor’s chickens to help me respond to a Photography 101 prompt!
