Buds on Trees Spring Hope

Although there is still lots of snow in GriggsDakota
 There are buds on the trees.
How can this happen during our beastly cold weather? 
 Suddenly my eyes can see Springtime through the veil of winter.
The land seems nearer
 to the surface of its snowy frosting. 
 The pink in the sky 
is the color of Spring and love and flowers.
The temperatures have moderated, albeit temporarily. 

The blue in the sky

Is bluer than it was before I noticed the buds on the trees.
Although we know there is a slippery road of winter yet to travel,
 The buds remind me 
There is a bouquet of lilacs in every bush.
Songbirds will come home to our trees. 
The sun is on his trip back to GriggsDakota.
