The emergence of spring!
Every day a new color, texture and smell arrives.
They visit briefly
To bring a little delight
To brighten the dull grays and browns of the winter past
And then amble on
Preparing for next year’s show
“Pay attention!” they scream.
“Enjoy my beauty now
Because tomorrow may be too late!”
And it possibly may be too late
But that’s okay
Because behind nature’s curtain
Is another anxiously waiting
To take its place.
