Nature still works!
It’s March and right on cue, there’s brilliant green everywhere,
The trees have woven beautiful new foliage for themselves.
They know it’s time,
They read the wind and earth and water,
And this is what they say, ‘We will uphold nature, will you?”
Who will notice the light on the flowers,
But for the quiet ones?
Who will think of the green we need,
But for the dreamy ones?
Why then is the world tilted loud?
Why doesn’t love trump fear?
When will the healing come?
When trees dress in their brightest greens,
The sky smiles in happy blues,
And the winds are mellow and sweet—
You know springtime is here.
In spring, I like to just disconnect and take it all in; merge in spirit with the freshness, the zing in the air. Springtime for me is a welcome back into joy.
