The earth soaks up the warm spring rain, wine for the new season softening the ground. Tender shoots of grass sprout through autumn’s dry remains. Bare tree branches knot with forming buds. A few begin unfolding delicate green foliage still vulnerable to frost. Revived by the humid atmosphere; the dark green luster of the evergreen returns.
The sound of gurgling water guides me to a fast flowing stream cut deep into the undergrowth. A splash of color bobbing, barely clearing the current, a cluster of bright yellow clings to the bank – marsh marigolds – tiny discs of sunlight caught up on the land. They strike a sharp contrast against the loamy ground and greens.
Flowers signal spring coming. The world is awakening and stretching her limbs. Days lengthen with each sun rise. The weather grows warmer, each day waking a new form of life. Lakes and rivers flow free again. Birds return to nest again. The paint palette explodes against maturing plants. Season of celebrating signs of resurrection, spring rises and initiates a fresh round of growing.
