Spring is coming

There is a nearly imperceptible
Change in air pressure
A ringing in the ears
The brush of a breeze
That signals the beginning
Of new life

Colors change from brown to green,
Pink, red, white
As buds burst forth on branches
Knife-like leaves pierce the soil
Roses bloom in varied colors
And the sky explodes in morning
And at the dusk of night

Birds flit about
Singing joyously of rebirth
Floating above the earth
Gathering bits of stick and hair
To create a loving home

It is a time of wonder
A time of growth and change
A time to give thanks for all
The glories that bless us and
Give us comfort
