Spring is in the Air at Boomer Lake, 2013
Open Your Heart
For some of you, you still feel like you’re in the midst of winter. There is still snow on the ground, few signs of spring avail themselves. The sun shines, yet with a shadow that imparts the cold. But never fear! Spring really is on the way, and here are some of the beautiful things that you will see, as well as perhaps, a few hangers on that have seen better days. All is well with nature, though things are still a little late in some areas. So without further adieu, I bit you a warm and grand welcome to things that are yet to be, and how spring will impart relief for that seasonal affective disorder.
Beginnings in the Youth of Spring
Look! Feast your eyes
On the bounty
Of what is to be.
Share the smile
Of the greater good
That has nothing
To do with life at hand.
Feel the sun
Upon your soul,
And cast your hope
Spring is in the air
And grander things
Are yet to be.
The buzz is in the air showing life awakening, as well as the hard work that goes into working the soil. The ant has its natural missing: to dig, to work, and to procure for the queen, while the others will also go about their daily duties within.
Tune in with Nature
Listen, and you’ll be privy to so much more that surrounds you. The gentle breeze carries so much more to your waiting ear, and it will go on whether you hear it or not. To be in tune with nature is to understand the meaning of the recipe for our lives as they are, and what we take for granted in every day living.
Share in the Wealth
Rejoice in the bountiful fruits of what surrounds you, be thankful for every day that you live and breathe, and the wonders of what you see in life. Take the time to close your eyes, draw in a deep breath, and hear that familiar robin calling. Open your windows wide on a wonderful day, air out the house, and in turn, reap the bounty of what is before you.
I give you life, dignity, and the heart of spring. Welcome to my house, and enjoy my simple fare. Life is truly what you will make of it, so do start spring with a little bit of nature at your fingertips. With life, there is hope, and with hope, there are the beautiful times that are yet to be. Bring wild flowers to a neighbor that is all alone. Leave a few nuts for the squirrel that keeps raiding your bird feeders. Share a cup of tea with some of the older folks forgotten in a nursing home. I guarantee you that life will be so much better for you if you spread a little cheer in the hearts of a few, and that will reach the hearts of many.
I give you a piece of me, my spirit through my eyes. Take this gift, and share it with others.
