Rain bounces off the sidewalk
creating a gentle song of
luscious delights waiting.
A chorus of beautiful occurrences.
The coming of spring.
Air, wiped clean by an eraser,
sparkles with early morning smells.
Sings of healthy exercise.
Fills eager lungs with crisp delights.
Invites all creatures to rejoice.
Flora puts on her greenest gowns
and flaunts about the world.
Dances with the whirling wind.
Changes into multicolored coats.
Brilliant spectacle of delights.
Earth rejoices with the rising sun.
Hues of gold wash clean the sky,
settling on the ground
light as butterflies; busy as bees.
The soil enriches, and life abounds.
Sounds of liberation fill the daytime
Giggles and shouts of joyful youth
sprung from the confines of house.
Radiantly alive; screaming happiness.
Celebrate another season of growth.
Sunset brings contentment,
carried on the wings of deepening color.
Lighting the sky in a show of power.
Reminding all life that another day awaits,
in the coming of spring.
