There's a war going on, all around us. A war that is fought every year, that sometimes gets violent, with flashes of light, rumbles of thunder, hailstones, flash floods.
But some battles are quiet.
You have to pay attention...
you have to open your eyes to notice the green growing stronger day by day
with reinforcements popping up left and right
winning the battlefield
pushing the gray and the brown back, back until
finally, Spring declares victory.
