Spring is once more in the air.

The air is decidedly warmer now and the powerful wind carries pollen everywhere it reaches in its new-found excitement. Flowers have begun to bloom, peeking out from their winter hiding places to welcome the new season. Butterflies will soon be flittering from petal to stamen while avoiding the bees that will be busy collecting for their hives. The sky sports a new suit of radiant blue with white trim while the sun glows brighter than ever.

The grass, brown and withered from the cold and the snow, pushes the brown away to bring out its green suit of life. The trees, baron and gray during their winter sleep, now sport new growth over the rough bark of their branches. Children beg to venture once more to the parks for the excitement of the slide and the swings; while lovers’ eyes are filled with romance and day dreams of their loves. Animals begin their yearly shedding, scratching and chafing as their coat thins for the warmer weather. And yes, the pests are out once more, seeking their prey who will be showing more skin for their biting.

Before long, the hot summer sun will blaze overhead and the grass and buds will brown once more from the intense heat. Ducks will gather on the ponds and lakes to raise their young in the warmth of the sun and coolness of the water. Birds will seek supplies for the nests they are building for the rearing of their young. And the other animals will begin their families once more. Humans will begin planting their gardens and will open their homes to the freshness of the air. Animals will once more run free in the fields and pastures, while the flies buzz freely through the dung they leave behind.

It is as if life has begun once more, having been asleep for thousands of years waiting for the kiss of spring to renew it. Life glows from tree, grass, flower beds, children, adults, animals, and insects alike. Life is once more bright and warm. Life blossoms when spring arrives.
