Silently, like a fir tree shaking off falling snow, I shed winter’s cloak and open my arms to spring’s warm embrace.
Breathing deep, I rejoice in longer days and the warmth of the sun falling upon my skin.
You are welcome here I whisper to the buds beginning to burst from the outstretched limbs of the trees dancing, still naked, in the sun. Fingers soft and gentle, I caress the fragile growth opening itself up to nature’s calling and smile joyfully in the connection. Here I am, I whisper. I see you. And the buds dance in delicate response to the spring air’s urging them to grow wild.
Life blossoms with its abundance.
I dance in gratitude.
Such a beautiful gift this life. This presence. These spring buds popping. The geese flying overhead. The grasses turning green. The river running free.
All of it, a gift.
Dance, Mother Nature calls. Dance.
And so I do.
And So I Do ©2022 Louise Gallagher I feel the spring air fresh against my skin calling me to cast off winter’s dark soul filled journey into the night and rejoice in the sun drawing the days out into the light. I feel life calling me to dance. And so I do.
