Spring Comes



I struggle to surrender being taken as a prisoner of Winter’s cruel depths.
But once captured I relax in its solitude, breath in its stillness…the quietness.
My spirit bathes in the purity of the first glistening snow that surrounds us.
It covers us up, we bundle in extra clothing, we all blend in as one, we appear equal.
We are survivors.

Hints of spring start to whisper, yet winter still lingers in the air.
Spring comes and strips us of our layers, were suddenly exposed.
We know who prepared in the autumn as sprouts of tulips break through the soil.
Nature yearns to be rescued, to come alive.
I too feel it, smell it, need it, like a slow thaw.
But a part of me has chosen to stay.

It's Feb 14 '05 and 75ºF outside and I am LOVING this spring-like weather. I find myself sad before long without sunshine.
Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm impressed. I write every now and then. Writing is much too personal to post on the internet for me. However, reading your posts are rather inspiring. Perhaps I'll dive in a little deeper.... Keep it up. Have you published anything?

I do believe I feel the same way about winter covering us up and spring unwrapping ourselves. You made a comment on my blog about chronic pain. It has made me rethink the agony I experience everyday. I have a 70 degree curve in my spine. That is one source of my pain, but there are other emotinal sources that I had not linked to the pain. I have alot to overcome in that area and not much time to do it. Sometimes I think I feel the pain the world is in, how can I relievwe that?
