The Story of Spring

 

Blessed Sun awakened, stretched,

and flew high into the sky.

Looking down on Mother Earth,

He smiled, spreading His golden

sunshine across Her mountains

with a brilliant golden hue.

 

Mother Earth smiled, reveling

in the spring-like warmth

that penetrated to the depths

of Her glorious soul.

 

To show Her gladness, She

ordered a rainbow of tulips

to burst through Her crust,

to open their buds in a

burst of color.

 

Blessed Sun bowed in thanks,

appreciation for the gift,

then slept behind a blanket

of darkening clouds.

 

Snow fell, a late-arrival,

covering Mother Earth’s gifts.

 

She called to Blessed Sun,

her friend, saying, “Arise!”

And He did, looking once

again at His lover.

 

All was well in the world.

Balance restored.

 

Mother Earth returned to work

creating new life,

while Blessed Sun came each

day to keep her company.

 

The cycle is unbroken.
