Aroma Of Winter In Spring 

In my neighborhood along the southern shore of Lake Ontario, fireplaces are still burning.  In early evening and night especially, I can smell that ozone-like fragrance of spring and summer rain in the air as it dances with the aroma of firewood drifting...

firewood drifting 

the aroma of firewood 
drifting through winter 

recalls memories 
of gatherings and 

stories of 
how we kept warm 

on moonless nights.
