Timeless





As I await the arrival of spring and the reawakening of life that lies beneath the blanket of snow I have come to realize that it is a celebration that has been since the beginning of time.

The snow warmed by the sunshine begins to fall into little droplets. As the melting continues, the moisture travels across the cool earth and joins to create a brook. The daffodils start to unfurl along the water's edge as the moss turns a vibrant green.

Soon the spring rains shall come and flow into the rivers that meander across the valleys. A chill wind will still blow but the fragrance that fills the air will be fresh.

Blossoms will bloom in dainty pinks and delicate whites, sharing their fragrance with the bees.

Life will revive from its winter's slumber and spring will be born again...

Hi Susan,
Lovely words, beautiful images, makes me yearn for Springtime even more than I usually do!!! The beginnings of Spring are popping up all over here in Northern California....daffodils are blooming, many of the fruit trees are displaying pink and white flowers....I'm beginning to sneeze a lot with allergies, but it is worth the palette of nature's colors.

Hello Susan!
What a beautiful post! Sitting here in hot sticky Florida (my air conditioner is running as I type this....and yes, there is a THUNDERSTORM going on right now!) to read about snow covered ANYTHING, sounds like a blessing to me! Enjoy your seasons for there are those of us who wish we could witness the marking of time firsthand.

Susan, I know it's been hard to wrap your mind around spring with all of the snow you've had but as always, you have a way with words. Now, I hope you're having your way with the weather!!
