The Sun

March 26, 2020

Spring Shoots ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun breaks
over a brown earth
Left as if dead from winter storms
But then
In the midst of all broke
Deemed dead and dying
Is a small green shoot
Bringing life
To a winter weary land.

The warm sun gives life
The rising ones
Has come
As winter retreats
On a later day
To blast
Blow once again.

The sun then rests
she has done her best
She too
Will be back
To nurture, bring life
With a warm, radiating
Spring sun.

Grass Grows Up

Grass grows up
From falling spring rain
As nutrients blend
Into earth parched cold
From winter’s freezing reign.

Optimistic and hopeful
Flowers bud
To warm sun rays.

Babies of all kinds born
Guarded lovingly by
Mothers, fathers working tirelessly
Feeding open mouths
Sometimes hard to attain.

Spring has come
The air is full
With a sweet, melodic refrain.

The Forest Blooms

Spring Flowering Plum ~ Photo by Patrice

The forest blooms with flowers gorgeous
Even in the middle of a dreary night
As light casts its rays across a pond
Reflexing joy in every way.

Suddenly I see a bee buzzing
On a flower right there, in front of me
Deer drink their fill and squirrels
Rack up miles running up and down
A tree’s woody trails.

All is well
Spring has come to this land
The forest blooms
While we prepare to be in the midst of this
That is so good, so grand.
