Today, at least in my little corner of the world, Spring is really springing !
Daffodils nod and smile in the sunlight; leaves are beginning to open on swaying branches and i can hear the steady hum of a mower as, somewhere nearby, a lawn is having its first haircut of the year.
The birds are singing; chirping and flirting in the hedgerow. Soon, no doubt, they will be bustling about with twigs and other nest-building material.
The warmer air has an aroma of something indefinable; the scent of new growth and fresh cut grass.
The year is definitely “at the Spring”………
Though it is not my favourite season, Spring makes me smile.
I have this vision in my head, of the northern hemisphere shaking itself and yawning. Rising after a long, deep sleep; brushing away cobwebs and opening windows. Putting Winter clothes away and donning a pretty garb of green grass and yellow flowers, topped with a bonnet of fluffy white clouds and blue satin ribbons.
There is a feeling that things are starting anew …… past mistakes wiped out . We have a clean slate; a blank page; a promise of endless possibilities.
Yesterday I was filled with aches and pains; sadness, yearning and ennui.
But Spring fills me with hope.
Today is a better day.
