#Blogflash2013 “only to fall again” (day)

21 days, 21 one prompts, an infinite amount of ideas.. 


spring forward into

longer days till the night hides

only to fall again

(haiku #5)

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward Sunday. Though not for any reason that means anything anymore, except to make states like Arizona feel superior. No longer do we need to have this regulation which was started during WWI to conserve fuel. Believe it or not till the early sixties it was not followed very well and congress had to step in and created the Uniform Time At of 1966.

Astronomical clock in Prague, Czech republicI do not know why it bothers me but it does, to know when I set my clocks back or forward is determined by a bunch of fat cats on capital hill. I hate spring because I lose an hour and am cranky for a few days. I would rather have it fall back and give me one more hour of sleep or reading. It really means little else, especially here in Alaska. The sun will still set later and later till it no longer sets near the end of June and it really feels like there is 24 hours in a day.

Don’t forget to set your clocks back Sunday!

#Blogflash2013 “only to fall again” (day)


  1. oh, how I hate losing that hour of sleep too! I do enjoy the feel of Spring here where I live on the Mississippi Coast. A chilly breeze can rustle your clothes and cause a slight shiver, yet the warmth of the sun immediately saturates your skin, warming you up. My only issue with Spring (outside of losing an hour) is the amount of sneezing I have to endure due to the pollen. 🙁

  2. I swear Daylight Savings is a punishment from our ancestors. Please, can we stop doing it now?

  3. We have the equivalent in the UK and it drives me crazy. Our clocks go forward next weekend (I think) so I’ll be cranky for a couple of days then too!
