Fire and Ice Photography: Month Poem -- March

The first verse establishes March as masculine.  The second verse is also masculine and reflects the presence of the spring equinox.  Thermal currents this time of year bring a wide contrast in changing weather patterns, hence, "The lamb or lion" effect. In writing "The Month Poems," my goal of having both a photograph and a poem for each month, was a daunting task.  Most often, a poem would come first and finding the right image could take many years.  Sometimes, a photograph would inspire a poem, as was the case for March.  This photo was taken on Riggsville Rd, just east of I-75 in 1979, but at the time was overlooked for a poem. Several attempts to capture March in poetry were made over the years, but none seemed appropriate. Finally, a revisit to some older photography produced this iconic image.  It was then that the poem flowed.
