Observations from my back porch.
|Breath of Spring
Feeling the cool spring breeze
as it caresses my light skin,
tossing my hair whichever way,
I close my eyes and take a breath.
I hear the melody of the birds
and rustling of the squirrels,
feeling the sunlight penetrate
as it lightens my inner spirit.
A peaceful calm washes over me
energizing and renewing my mind,
leaving me to dream about the future
with hope in my heart to carry me through.
The scent of fresh-cut grass mixes
with the perfume of newly trimmed trees,
as I take in all of spring’s gentle reminder
of where my true strength comes from.
