The daffodils have been up since the first week in February, and now they have buds. Last week we had 5 inches of snow on the ground and tomorrow it will be 70 degrees. I collect images and hope for the right moment to use them in a song. My spirit comes alive with spring but I feel like I am being teased a bit this year. Songwriting can be a bit of a tease. A phrase and a couple measures of melody that show promise, but do not evolve. Is it because the snippet is destined to fail, or is it because I haven't concentrated on listening and crafting? Like daffodils, there is no guarantee that a song will bloom in spring, only hope.
