Last Days of Winter

blooming again

           blooming again

Last days of winter
Vernal Equinox is day after tomorrow
Bedroom window stayed open all night
Air isn’t too cool to leave it open this morning
No more heater in the bedroom
Soon the down comforter will disappear

Birds are singing
Grass is long and green
Happened so suddenly
Snow fell just last week.
I turn my back to the fireplace and look out the window now.

Spring is my season
An aliveness that slept through the winter
Awakens as hope in my heart
Sad tears flow down to the earth
Watering seeds of joy
Prayers of gratitude nurture
Delight breaks through my grief
Into the sunlight of rapture
Blooms happiness
Until it fades and dies
In the constant cycles
Only change is faithful
