Winters Gone

The long cold winters gone.

Blood of trees begins to flow.

Birds singing a mating song.

New plants begin to grow.


Wonderful warmth in the air,

with raging storms to begin.

All the animals are a pair,

Life's cycle begins again.


Lakes and ponds warming in the sun.

Fish jumping, with splashes fall.

In flight, the dragonflies hum.

Spring Peepers in nightly call.


Nature knows what she must do.
Is it the same for me and you?

    Only three more weeks until the Spring Equinox and the beginning of the new season. Your descriptive write has me anticipating the eventual arrival even more.
