I took a break from formalities and sat down on the floor.
To bask in the sunlight and look up at the blue skies.
I allowed a moment for myself and let out a content sigh.

The Spring Comes

When spring comes,

Nights are shorter

Days are longer and warmer.


When spring comes,

It promises life and growth

Along with new hopes.


When spring comes,

Birds chirp, bees buzz

Trees bloom with fresh buds.


The seasons have changed

When spring comes

There’s always merriment

& freshness in the air.


..and the tree said..

“the cold, harsh winter¬†withered me away.

It left me with nothing

but barrenness.

You saw through my emptiness..

You stood there for hours looking at my

crooked arms and shriveled body.

Though I had nothing upon me,

you always looked at me with a smile and exclaimed,

“So beautiful!”

and now the sun shines down upon me

making me warm

slowly bringing me back to life.

and now just for you my dear,

I will gather all my fallen leaves

and bloom like I’ve never before.

my leaves will dance when you move.

my blushing blossoms will paint rosiness on your cheeks.

the sweet fragrance from my wild flowers

will bury itself in your soft black curls.

my breeze will touch ever so lightly,

and kiss your face.

then I will watch you,

like you always did..

I will watch you, smiling at me again.”
