Tiny buds appear

In what had been barren ground

Opened eyes and heart

Up before daybreak

celebrating the sunrise

As darkness covers the daylight

A stillness in the air

Whispers of the coming storm.

The birds,

Unmoved by its message,

Do not alight from the branch.

Again the sun will rise.

Winter’s snow melted

out to play after dinner

bedtime in daylight

Dark and rainy days

dry ground be satisfied

tulips awaken

New Song

April 14, 2015

Ah, the choir sings again

my favorite melody,

and everytime I hear it,

my heart is blessed anew!
