When thunder wakes

The day started clear, and I heard flickers, robins, and blackbirds singing when I left home to travel to the university.

Around 3 p.m., a snowstorm swept through. A north wind blew big, wet snowflakes horizontally across Pueblo's Baculite Mesa and through the university buildings, while thunder boomed.

Thunder speaks, and winter--on some level--is over. Now come spring snows.
