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.
