My First Spring

I'm not sure if it was the endless winter….


….the bone-chilling days and nights...


….the unrelenting snowfall….



….or,  if it is simply who I am….



….or, perhaps, who I have become….




…but something about this spring seems different….





….the lush greens…





...the vibrant pink and oranges….





…the anticipation…





….the life….




….perhaps I will never know the reason behind my emotions...





 …the tear shed for what has been….or what will come….

                         

...raw emotions that rage through my veins




…welcoming in the season and all that it holds….



….the significance of a blossom….
…an unfurling frond….


….a fruit-laden vine….
….dandelion bouquets....


Rebirth.

  3. I think your last word choice says it all. REBIRTH. I too, at age 56, am wondering with great WONDER, why it is that this spring is so much more special. Maybe it was that long winter, maybe I'm growing wiser, but whatever it is, rebirth is the process in which these emotions tumble and toss to raise praise. Enjoy it my dear. Anita

  8. Monica, the way you express yourself is so heartfelt. Every word you write I connect with in so many ways. I know it sounds corny and contrived but it is so very very true.

    1. Aw thanks Jen! It's such a rewarding feeling knowing that just expressing everyday emotions and sentiment can do this! Not contrived at all!
