I’m Ready For Spring

Image

Spring may only be weeks away

Yet it feels like winter is here to stay

I’m trying to be happy about this snowy season

But I’m having difficulty finding even one reason

 

The cold air makes my skin so very dry

It’s become cracked & so painful that I want to cry

I got my snow on Christmas Day

Now I beg of you winter, please go away

 

I slip on the ice, my body feels frozen, & the roads become slick

Not to mention that this when it’s the easiest for me to get sick

The sun doesn’t come out nearly enough to play

Causing me to feel more tired, depressed, & resentful of these skies of gray

 

I know there’s always a rhyme and a reason for each season

But my body has declared that winter’s long stay is treason

Spring, oh where for art thou, won’t you come home?

So that upon green grass & beautiful flowers I might roam

 

I want to see the season of rebirth, feel the joy of life anew

To sit beneath a tree with its leaves of green, drinking iced tea & eating honeydew

Bask in the sun as we walk our puppy so that she may play in it all day

For your swift return oh spring, I do humbly pray

 

No I am not going to move far far away

For there are reasons I feel the need to stay

And don’t tell me not to complain about the cold

Surely you know I won’t then do as I’m told

 

It’s true that then when summer makes its debut

And the days become too hot & humid, I’ll complain about that too

But that’s only because the extreme either way takes its toll on my body

Though when all is said and done, I really do appreciate all of nature’s beauty

 

The snow, the ice, the changing of the leaves, the sun, the wind, & the rain

They’re all needed, it’s just that after awhile, each can become a pain

And right now, that is what winter has become to me

A pain for my skin, my lungs, my joints, most especially my back & knees

 

I know that you have your place winter, that there’s a reason you exist

But, it’s nearly your time to go, of this I strongly insist

Let my body thaw, mind rejuvenate, and heart rejoice

In the coming of spring’s most wondrous & melodious voice

Listen To The Rain

Image

It’s bleak and misty
Been raining on and off for days
Depression threatens to take hold
Craving the sun’s warmth
Longing to bask in its glow

April showers have certainly arrived
Falling to the earth
Renewing and awakening
So much had fallen asleep
Within Winter’s grasp

Each raindrop has a story to tell
Staring at the sky
Wondering what they might say
If I were to only ask them
And might they enlighten me so?

I’m here to make the grass grow
I hear a chorus of voices say
And yet others I hear tell me
We’re here for the flowers
Letting them know it’s time to blossom

Don’t be blue, the sun will be back out soon
It’s just that we’re long overdo
The world around you has hibernated long enough
And right now it’s our turn in helping it to wake up
Fret not, just watch the world around you grow

This is the season of rebirth
Hear the birds sing their songs to you
Watch the chipmunks scamper to and fro
See the world become green again
Perhaps you’ll find joy in that my friend

Welcome Spring

Image

The birds sing

The sound echos all around me

I try to trap the music in a jar

To listen to it at a later date

 

The snow melts, more and more each day

Bright and warm, the sun comes to greet me

Squirrels scamper to and fro

So it would seem that Spring is here

 

Winter’s chill still lingers

Clinging to my bones

Cold wind rushes in

The sun fights it as temperatures rise

 

More and more I see people jogging

Riding their bikes

Making great use of the longer days

Enjoying the return of rebirth and warmth

 

Good-bye Winter

It’s not a fond farewell

For you’ll be back all too soon

Yet I still tip my hat to you

 

You have your use

But it’s your turn to rest

And Spring’s time to play

I will continue to enjoy it for as long as it stays
