PAD Day 4: Lune-y for Spring

Today's dual prompts from Poetic Asides and NaPoWriMo: (1) Write a poem whose title starts with the word "Since", and (2) write a "lune". A lune is a haiku-like form of three short lines - there are varying versions of the form, but today I am using the one created by poet Jack Collum. It's very simple: line 1 = 3 words, line 2 = 5 words, and line 3 = 3 words. So here's my "lune string", as it were:

Since the Last Snow

we’ve put away
the shovels, the rock salt
for another year

we’ve unbundled ourselves,
opened doors, pulled up shades
looking for green

we’ve watched robins
wander in our thawing yard
hunting for breakfast

we’ve driven everywhere
playing our favorite music loud
windows rolled down

we’ve started digging
in the cool loam, planting
for the future
