Like the Flowers
I love Spring best of all the seasons.
Everything is bright and beautiful and clean
and the air is infused with the scent of blossoms.
The world is a new slate,
cleansed by the snow and ice of winter.
The pace of life seems to quicken
as the earth readies for the summer.
The heat that is soon to come is welcome
after the cold months before.
Rain soaks the ground in preparation,
soon to cradle
the seeds of trees and flowers.
Creatures bring their young into the sunshine
and birds sing their melodies, as though
they have been practicing them for years.
My heart beats in rhythm.
Because Spring is a time for music
and I am dancing along.
I love Spring the best of all the seasons.
It doesn't take much to make me smile
when I'm out in the world, walking
through fields of flowers
and feeling the breeze on my skin.
This world was made for these moments.
Spring awakens me from a long winter
and I am renewed.
I am clean.
I am whole.
I love Spring the most of all the seasons
because it is a time for new beginnings
And I am beginning anew.
