April Showers

Soft water spills

Into rain darkened earth-

Rich with life.

Out pours a whisper of breath,

All spring awaits her,

Like sweet growth on supple limbs,

Fragrant and new.

Green so alive it is golden

Blooms and condenses-

Fresher each day.

Flashing in hillocks,

Bursting from riverbeds,

Cool and sudden.

The intake of happiness

Abounds in ecstatic…


It Breathes… It Sings… Spring Lives
