Spring is a time of renewal and new life. Everything comes alive, and the flowers are all so beautiful and fresh. I love spending time in my garden when the weather has thrown off the cloak of winter. I refresh my garden with new plants, removing the old and spent and rejoice in the new sprouts. The roses are starting to bud, and new life is emerging. It is the best time to be outside to take in the beauty, smells and sounds. So without further a-due here is my latest attempt at poetry.
Spring – It Begins
The blanket of earth is warming.
Life begins to peek through,
Tentatively revealing itself,
Tender and new, the palest of green.
Reaching for the warmth of the sun,
It grows and transforms.
It flowers, gently swaying in the breeze.
The flower begins to fad,
Spent and ready to bring new life.
It starts as a speck, barely seen.
It grows, becoming the child of the faded flower.
New life begins again,
Fresh and new.
It’s the wonder of spring,
As a new cycle begins.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed my dabbling in poetry. It is something that I enjoy reading. Writing it is not quite so easy… :-).
In keeping with the theme, I would like to dedicate this poem to a new budding relationship. Jon Jefferson from “Misadventures in Strange Places” has become a great new friend. Like me, he has also been dabbling in poetry. I admire his work and so appreciate his support in this blogosphere. So here’s to you, Jon.
So what are your thoughts about spring? Is it a time you rejoice? What is it you like the most about this time of year?
Life’s journey continues…
