On this spring day
Just beneath the surface lies
A new life cycle

Warm breeze blows
Mixing winter and spring air
Till spring fully springs

First buds
Catch my eye
Offering hope

Flowers erupt from
Dormant bulbs beneath the earth
A riot of color

The lawn sprinkler
Oscillates back and forth to
Resurrect the grass

Sunshine falls
On bare, springtime shoulders
Out for a walk

That rub between my toes
The first time of the season
When I wear flip flops

Spring is
Anything but calm
Bursting forth new life
