With the restlessness that only Spring can bring, I drove around to look up at one of my favorite spots in GriggsDakota.
In a burst of foolish hopefulness, I drove up to see if I could find signs of Spring up there.
Reality can often be disappointing on a Spring Day in GriggsDakota.
So we deal in the great potential.
The Summer sky,
We see the vast promise of a new season,
Its potential to produce bountifully.
On the cold Spring afternoon, I could imagine green,
The hum of bees,
The startled jump of a grasshopper.
It is hard to be patient.
But we know that great potential lies in the land.
And so we will not lose heart, though the season in slow to change in GriggsDakota.
