This season called spring

Everyday I hear the heighten chirping of the birds and see the flowers pushing their way up from underneath the soil. The earth is talking to us and leading the way, it is the season called spring setting the stage for summer.

The sights and sounds of spring are infectious to us all. Our bodies behave as if they have never felt the warmth of the sun and air, creating an inner craving to embrace nature and a desire to simply take a walk in it. It is our winter body awakening to this season called spring. We are reuniting ourselves with the creator of it all; we are becoming one with nature once again.

Spring with all of its breathtaking beauty around us, fills our very being with a sense of hope and renewal.

I thank you Lord that I am able to see this season called spring!


The Spring
By Thomas Carew

Now that the winter’s gone, the earth hath lost
Her snow-white robes; and now no more the frost
Candies the grass, or casts an icy cream
Upon the silver lake or crystal stream:
But the warm sun thaws the benumbed earth,
And makes it tender; gives a sacred birth
To the dead swallow; wakes in hollow tree
The drowsy cuckoo and the humble-bee.
Now do a choir of chirping minstrels bring,
In triumph to the world, the youthful spring:

"I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?" - Edward Giobbi

"Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer." - Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
