The rain pounds the earth
Yet the daffodils still stand

I never thought of flowers like that. You are so powerful with just a handful of words.

Yay! Today the sun has won. The grey has whimpered away. I will be like one of these daffodils and spring up to try to touch the powder blue and its golden charm
