after heavy snow
bright daffodils and tulips
a grandchild’s cry

My response to Carpe Diem #1801 New Beginnings: first cry
In today’s challenge, the ‘first cry’ might be cry of a new-born human or an animal. Chèvrefeuille says that maybe, with super hearing, we might hear the first blossoms cry.
My grandson will be two years old in March. Days before he was born, we were recovering from the ‘beast from the east’, which brought chaos to the UK. I didn’t think I’d make it in time for his birth. I remember looking out of the train window and seeing shoots and buds of flowers poking through the snow on the railway sidings. It was a relief to arrive and discover I hadn’t missed anything – he was taking his time.
