The Coming of Spring

A flock of 15 Robins graced me with a visited late
last week. I stood so very still, dazzled by their presence,
while I lingered near the tree where they perched.

They took my breath away. Wave upon wave of awe
continued to resonate through me, as I watched them.

I was truly witnessing the coming of Spring.

This precious gift also inspired me to write a bit
of verse for my contribution to the
Winter Poetry Postcard Exchange.

February 20th:

Harken the coming of all things
hale to those that usher in Spring
sent to proclaim via gentle wing
a message of hope eternal it would be

I saw a bluebird 2 days ago. I was suprised! No robins yet, not that I've seen.

What a lovely gift from nature. Last week the robins slowly started to appear in our garden. And yesterday when I came home the air was filled with their sweet songs... thanks for this beautiful post. Roxanne said...
