Just like clockwork, Mother Earth gives birth
to the world again.
Nature is unearthed from a long winter's nap,
awakened from a deep slumber.
She breathes life into the ground, air, and sky.
And with great vibrancy, nature's display bursts into life.
Rejuvenation at it's finest.
She meticulously orchestrates her symphony,
creating the finest of melodic overtures with the purest of sounds.
You can hear the harmony through the birds' sweet voices, a babbling brook,
and the gentle whistling of the winds.
The trees and grasses break into a waltz,
bending gracefully to the melody produced.
She continues her aristry by pulling out her paintbrush,
carefully selecting her lively color palette.
With the gentlest of strokes, she creates a masterpiece.
The billowing clouds against the rich "Carolina" blue skies
make a perfect backdrop for the colorful changes taking place on the earth.
The color hue brightens as the grass transforms into a lush velvety green rug.
The budding trees and flowers add just the right amount of vibrancy
for completion of the priceless piece.
And with the wave of her hand,
she summons the warm rays of the sunshine and the gentle Spring showers
to provide all the nutrients for the display to shine.
As she sits back to admire the exhibition, she smiles.
Her love and care is abundant in all that is created.
She is an artist in the truest of forms.
Spring has always been my favorite season. I find there are some pretty powerful messages that cause quite a stir in me. This year, I find this season overwhelmingly hands down the most inspirational one for me so far. Boy does nature have quite a lot to say if we just slow down enough to observe and really listen. It is a time for deep reflection of what has laid dormant inside us, giving birth to a fresh start to life and new beginnings. It is the season to cleanse and nourish our souls.
Enjoy this season for all the beauty it upholds. Take in the sights, sounds and smells and see where they lead you.
