A Blossoming Comes


After the hibernation of Winter

is over

nature jolts into action

the time has come

to Spring into life

bare branches burst with new green

buds push through their hard protective casings

allowing soft leaves and flowers to unfurl

it’s a beautiful moment

to behold

so much bounty

blessing the eye

greeting the nose

awakening the dormant

within all of us

stirring ideas

making fingers and toes

wriggle with anticipation

for creations to be born

and take fruit


“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”
― Voltaire
