April is one of those months that passes in the “Blink of an Eye”.
In April, after anticipating the coming of Spring through long winter months, nature hits the fast forward button. One minute tree limbs are skeletal and the next covered with unfolding leaf buds. One minute gelatinous masses float in the pond and the next minute fat little tadpoles are thick in the water.
In the “Blink of an Eye” colors pour across the landscape like paint on a palette.
Bright flowers of the Redbud and Dogwood trees are here too short a time.
In the”Blink of an Eye” it will be May Day. Perhaps then life on Earth will settle into a slower pace where writers and painters can blink and not miss an inspirational moment.
