We welcome back the renewal of spring this week in the midst of chaos. To remember the beauty in our world, here’s a poem that shows spring breaking through on my magical trail.
The trail weaves through the forest
Winding around logs of past lives
It takes me past a mysterious pit
While brushing the edge of wilderness.
I meander slowly on the red dirt
Like a river on a warm summer day.
Each step brings me closer to my soul
As spring magic sprinkles the trail
Awakening the beauty of renewal
It rises from its quiet hibernation
With a long stretch, its eyes open.
It embraces me in a cyclic cuddle
That flows through me an awareness.
Each tree becomes a welcomed friend
The birds are now my exclusive guides
While the insects teach me about life.
This eternal nexus tethers me to the moment
Grateful, my meditative walk continues
Guided only by the magic on my trail.

Spring is back–I can hardly believe it. Lovely welcome back, Denise.
Thank you, Jacqui;) We got winter back, 18 inches of wet snow and counting…lol.
A vibrant poem to welcome back the return of spring! I saw my first robin the other day and felt like a giddy kid (or maybe I was embracing my inner child). Happy almost spring, Denise.
I’m with you. Mae:) When that first robin comes so does that excitement of spring. Ours just arrived along with our dove. That sweet coo is so uplifting. Unfortunately, winter just returned and we are buried under 19 inches of wet snow. I hope the birds found a cozy spot to ride it out. Happy almost spring xo
Oh, no! I did see that California was getting hit with a snow storm. I hope all that white stuff melts quickly!
It might take a bit to melt. We ended up with over 2.5 feet, but very happy to have our power back again!
What a beautiful ode to spring, Denise! I can picture it vividly!
Thank you, Jan:) We had some beautiful weather to inspire. Now back to winter…lol
My ‘like’ button does not work, but your poem is lovely! Have a wonderful week ahead. ♥♥♥
I have that issue sometimes, too. Thanks, Billy:)
Thank you, John:)
This is so beautiful, Denise. Like a salve for the soul.
Thank you, Robbie! Spring can be very healing:)
This is a beautiful poem, Denise. Like you, I’m more than ready for spring!
Thanks, Harmony:) I’m ready now after getting 2.5 feet of snow this week!
With all the chaos going on in the world, this is so refreshing to read. Thank you, Denise!
Thank you, Joan. Nature is still there to sooth us:)
A lovely poem, Denise! 🖤
Thank you, Marlena:)
Your poetry is especially lovely at these trying times. Hope you’re keeping well, Denise. xox
Thank you, Eden. I am doing well and very happy to have our power back after a big snowstorm! I hope you are staying and doing well, too, Eden xo
Thanks so much, D.L., for these lovely thoughts expressed in your poem on Spring. Yes, I feel the need to hurry Spring along and when I venture into my garden despite the cold and wet Lancashire weather, Nature is awakening, Spring-flowering bulbs are determinedly pushing through mulch and my trees are beginning to bud. Enjoy the good Spring days, although here we might have a flashback to proper Winter even at the end of April. Have a pleasant weekend and stay safe. 🙂
I agree it is nice to see spring peeking through even with winter making appearances. I hope you make out into your garden soon. I always look forward to see your pictures of it on Instagram.
Thanks D.L. When I have a moment, I’ll post a butterfly on Instagram – snapped it yesterday when we had a bit of sunshine. 🙂
I will watch for it:)
Lovely, Denise. Spring has finally arrived in our area and the robins are everywhere present. New Life, a New Beginning. YES!
Absolutely Gwen. When spring arrives it brings the buried hope:) xo
Love this, Denise! Spring is my favorite–yes to the magic!
Thanks, Julie:) Hooray to spring and magic!
