geese skein
across patchwork fields -
new shoots appear

I could almost smell the Spring Breeze wafting from your lovely blog. Good luck with the book. Nice to see writers using their ingenuity to get to as broad a public as possible. Best Wishes.

I had to look up "skein" to see what it meant when used with geese ~ I love learning a new meaning of a word, especially when I then get to see how beautifully you have paired its double meaning with "patchwork" in the next line ~ nicely done! xo Kari
