The end of winter with trees hibernating,
Gracefully, silently singing a sad
Song of a deep and dreary freeze.
A sting of harshly frigid air stabs
Your lungs as you plead
For one more breath of life.
Granted that gift, you revel
In the beauty of the pain.
The pain that reminds you
Life is still here.
The beginning of spring as buds come again
Ready for the reunion of you and me.
Floral fragrance flies
Through the skies and into hearts,
And once again life is a miracle,
Defying death for another year.
An inescapable optimism
Floods souls with each fresh rain.
The world begins to dance again,
Silent no more.
