SPRING REFLECTIONS


Warm breezes wrap me like a baby in a blanket

filling my senses with a glorious smell.

Once a dull brown hue becomes a beautiful bright green

as nature’s whisper becomes a mighty yell.

Flowers wake from long slumbers

opening their petals to the sky.

Birds journey back to summer homes

dancing, chirping, long into the night.

The swamp makes a grand entrance

with sights and sounds galore.

The magical voice of the croaking frog

fills me with  peace and wanting more.

I hear a sad song, bittersweet to the ear,

the bird is speaking a haunting shrill.

Is it a love song or a eulogy, I do not know.

I do surmise it’s the pleading of a whippoorwill.

Buds pop up like a jack-in-the-box,

and like a little girl, I watch in awe

as nature springs back to life

and winter’s cold grip begins to thaw.
