May Day! May Day!

8" x 8", oil on canvas

April showers brought
mold,
mildew,
thunder,
lightening,
hail,
tornadoes
and flooding.

And yet...
the flowers outside my window
have courageously popped their heads up
in search of the Sun...
inviting,
coaxing,
cajoling,
begging us
to follow their brave example.
