Beneath the peat-rich soil a kernel sprouts
Warmed by the sun it shoots to expand
Pushing through earth’s loam it seeks success
Spring encompasses all and urges success
By increments she touches every sprout
Ardent in her discipline to support expand
Seedling thrives through organic expand
Light…dark…climate, systemically feeds success
Growing beauty flowering from sprout
Delicate sprout, your perseverance expands, creating success

Newness envelopes all in the garden
Delicate buds and shoots appear sudden
Overnight her work is apparent
Nature’s spontaneous joy is bidden
Schefflera displays its umbrella
Baby’s breath, like a laced mantilla,
Emits its honey-fragranced scent
Twining begins the mandevilla
Potted roses burst their red
Spent twigs and leaves have all been shed
Orchids prime to flaunt their stuff
New staghorn fern gets set to spread
Life renews after lying inert
Intrinsic rhythm reasserts
Vortex whirls and makes it hum
The cycle of life…harmonic concert

hatchlings left unattended
empty nest syndrome
spring budding appears
years follow years…destiny
molting skin leaves him exposed
hawk hovers, then swoops
weak, slow, soft, decaying breath
death gently enters

I thought the bougainvillea
was frozen, dead and gone–
No more flower to gaze upon.
But when trimming it today
a bit of green was found.
Beauty for another spring!

I could tell spring had sprung,
the lizards and frogs have thawed.
And the crickets have begun their
chirping in the early evening hours.
Little bits of greenery have sprouted
from the surrounding trees and flowers
which just weeks earlier were barren and
appearing done in by the freeze.
I’ve even discovered a chrysalis of
the beautiful Monarch butterfly which had
attached itself to the garden’s patch
of scraggly, lanky milkweed.
The lantana is an early bloomer and
has burst forth with multi-colored hues.
A morning mockingbird was perched on it
taking a break from singing the blues.
It’s a time of new beginnings even
from seeming death–life springs
eternal from the sacred and fertile earth.

First sign that spring has appeared
Heart-shaped leafy foliage–
Brilliant pinks edged green

The harsh, chilling freeze
Slowly warms into the spring’s
First hint of dewdrops
Left unfrozen upon the
Daffodil and rose.
