Beware…March will graze your skin with blades of wind.

Its spring, newborn sun darkens all milk-white skin and rosy cheeks forever.

It will burn out fallen twigs in warming fires. It will burn new saplings and impatient blossoms with frozen gusts.

It will warm your bones and moulded joints.

March will burn you and all wood.

March will graze you. It will constantly amaze you…

Every March we wear a March bracelet to protect the skin from the extreme elements of the month’s changing moods. At the end of March I climb a tree to place the bracelet on a twig for the birds to start a nest.
