Today is the first day of SPRING in the northern hemisphere. Though storms are predicted for this week…rain and snow…the heart quickens to realize that Spring has arrived.

In the midst of the inevitable retreat
prescribed by winter
with its grey wind and rain sheets,
frivolity doesn’t come easy.
Unlike the first green, renewed hope
of that undulating spring invitation
This accelerated energy elbows me towards
Fae fun as exploding blossoms
beside the majestic mountain
where I now live.
Magical miracles happen here.
The perfectly sunny painted soul
inhales and exhales
when I pause and listen closely
sitting backbone to the faery well.
Then, twinkly toes twirling in dew wet grass
dance with spring’s first hummingbirds
in their startling altered hovering.
Family is all my relations–
this brings new meaning to family time.
Heal yourself amidst these
earth, air, fire, water
the ingredients for balance, peace.
The world I know transforms during this
cycle of exhilarating expansion yet again
and I hear the spring breeze sighing
through the fragrant cherry blossoms “trust love”.
How do you welcome spring? Write about it.
Perhaps this season has a bit of frivolity in store for you. Be alert to it!
