Springtime Quietude

Spring caroms to life

A miracle wonder

I learned that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness. — Brenda Ueland

Spring is back! All things are awaken from its long winter hibernation. Life that had been temporarily suspended from living so it could take reprieved from feeling over worked, over fatigued and over exhausted  would be able to recharge, to re-energize and to gain back nourishment has now resumed to normal function like this Yellow Grevillea here. Actually Grevilleas don’t die. They just stop blooming at the call of fall. Though they lazed, they don’t shed their clothes off  like some non perennials.

Spring brings promise of lovely days, warm days and sunny days. Spring is life! It is a very special  season that makes the weather caroms the nocturnal habitats of nature back to its perpetual habitation at this time of year.

With the exception of the last two or three successive days, the Spring in our area was tainted with gloom and for a little while  was sulking being soaked in the cold again. It only sneezed a few drips of drizzle from the sky and quickly dried up as if the hands of the earth hurriedly wiped off  its lachrymal canal.

As am tapping my keyboard, the day looks beautiful outside. The vast expanse of the ethereal sky is highly inhabited by immaculate cumulus clouds nestling one after the other.

On the northern sphere it is embedded by a monstrous cumulonimbus clouds that threaten the pleasant mood of the day. Oh, oh, guess what’s going to happen tonight? But the air is mildly breezy and cool.

Cumulus (weather symbol – Cu) clouds belong to the Clouds with Vertical Growth group. They are puffy white or light gray clouds that look like floating cotton balls. Cumulus clouds have sharp outlines and a flat base. Cumulus clouds generally have a lower cloud deck of 1000m and a width of 1km.

Cumulus clouds can be associated with good or bad weather. Cumulus humilis clouds generally show up on a warm summer day and are associated with fair weather. These clouds have only slight vertical growth and they are detached with lots of blue sky in between. Cumulus congestus clouds are usually associated with bad weather. These clouds grow to great heights and usually become cumulonimbus clouds. Their tops look like cauliflower heads and indicate that light to heavy showers can occur”.

The song of the spring

Meanwhile, these birds also spring back to their old habit of creating their symphony one more time to fill the deafening silence of this village with their brand of music that echoes on the air. They dispel the quietude of spring!
