Contrary to my poem on climate change a couple weeks ago, “The Effects”, I found a trail of spring on a recent morning walk. Even though we’re still in dire need of buckets of raindrops, the blooms I saw rejuvenated my steps. I felt inspired because of their beautiful representation of rebirth, exactly what this lovely new season is all about. They didn’t mind posing for a quick photo op, so would you like to join me for a second time around on the trail?
And now, a little more about Nature herself…
Harmony lives in each flow of a breeze
In each gentle embrace of evergreens
The clear blue enchantingly shields
Let nothing stay concealed.
Blooms tender their affable smile
Leaves listen in for awhile
Birdsong soothes the whirling mind
A landscape perfectly designed.
Nature’s lessons are plentiful
Shall our choices be flexible?
We are not ignorant to her offerings
Receive them for relief of suffering.
A painting of beauty and brilliance
Mesmerizing even in distance
Can you deny the splendid view?
Allow serenity to fall into you.

I can imagine your walk was refreshing with all the lovely spring flowers, Lauren. I would have loved to walk with you. I’m sure the lovely flowers called me to capture their beauty and we can compare. Your poem is so sweet. I’ll check out your book! ❤

I still haven’t met up with any bloggers yet, Lauren. I wish it will happen someday, walking together and talking about something in common. Oh, I just emailed you a revised post for the tour. Let me know if it’s okay. 😍

Beautiful poem, it has a very pleasing rhythm. Even though we don’t have clear seasons around here, there are definitely signs of spring everywhere.
