A Spring Vision
I know that spring remembers me,
she cradles me so gently,
spreading out her bright dress, her arms
reaching out to shade and delight.
I sit in silence, a tree by the creek,
nothing between me and the green moss rock
but the water, and it tumbles hard like rain,
downward, to rest into a calming pool.
I can hear her symphony beckoning
me to her side, the birds
and the water coming together in harmony
a concert to sooth my soul.
Each day I sit beside her, in gratitude,
of her serenity and rebirth. In that
moment I see her luminous light
and she fills me.
I have been neglecting my blog and my friends for over a month. In someways I feel like I have been unfaithful. I have fallen for the ease and fun of Facebook. Many of my blog friends are there too. I play open games of Scrabble with bloggers that can take two days or a week to complete. I can give short status updates (like Twitter) and I have been reunited with junior high and high school pals. I've even had a few over to the house. My ALS pals are there too. We all create virtual farms together or decorate apartments in Yoville. We simply play!
I wanted to figure out how to do both but it's summer and vacation is coming in July. I am determined to do both. I am well and my new computer is up and working. I'm still faster than it is so I'll be using my one finger until I can't. Spring was late this year so the pool is still too cold to workout. My face has lost a wee bit more muscle but I'm still smiling. Happy Spring!
