Spring Time Haiku

Spring time breaks anew
Life creeps back into the world
It smells like cow shit

(Editor's Note: I happen to think that the smell of cow manure being flung far and wide over thawing soil is wonderful. It's the true first smell of spring, as it usually precedes the smell of green, growing things by at least two weeks. Be sure to keep your nostrils tuned for the other delights of the season, the first BBQ, first campfire, and on that first warm Saturday afternoon... carwax!)

  1. I always know it's officially spring when my car gets covered in bird poo and bug guts. I miss living at home, being in the country and getting to smell the cow manure...
