Day 622: New Season

'From here I can go anywhere I choose.' 

I love how spring represents new beginnings. Clean slates, endless possibilities. And especially today, as it's my birthday and the beginning of an entirely new year.

New Season - Wendy Cope

No coats today. Buds bulge on chestnut trees,
and on the doorstep of a big, old house
a young man stands and plays his flute.

I watch the silver notes fly up
and circle in blue sky above the traffic,
travelling where they will.

And suddenly this paving-stone
midway between my front door and the bus stop
is a starting-point.

From here I can go anywhere I choose.
