J for ABC Wednesday

Two days short of two years ago, I posted Janus for ABC Wednesday for the first time. I re-read it and discovered that nearly all of the commenters are still playing this delightful ABC Wednesday meme. I decided to repost Just for fun and because, in all that time, change has happened but some things Just don't change.


What Janus Sees


Pocked by nimble hooves
five o’clock stubble clings,
stubborn in wind-chilled sun.
One six-pack of scrub jays
scatters the silence,
tepid spring forces its way
upon the barren brow
defined by seasoned gray.










Pen and ink sketch by Sue.

Hey excellent second time around. Love the poem and the sketch.

Yes, ABC Wednesday is a lot of corporate fun.

The ABC meme is great,isn't it? I think I joined in in 2005

Joy said...

Definitely worth posting again, and an interesting thought. I think I had just started the ABC addiction around that time.

What a great way to start they day-- with a little poetry! What if Janus looks in the other direction?

A very neat description of the advent of spring - slow, determined, victorious at last.

My first Jaunt with ABC Wednesday and loved the poem and inking. It is a dreary 'still winter' day out, and the poem just feels 'right.'
Thanks,
Meryl

Maybe this is how the alphabet should be taught to kids. What fun they would have running around finding things to match the letters.

Your words truly tumble. :-)
