Still…an unusual feeling stirred, lilted inside me…like laughter spilling back.
Maybe it was the daffodils and buttercup freesia abloom in fresh water buckets at market. Or the strawberry and cream tulip bunches already appearing there.
Surely comes the Spring! they sang.
Then… like whispers growing louder, the pear blossoms joined in bloom!
Linger a little longer, I whispered back… till they agreed.
My picture windows remain aglow with their snow and mint topped glory, catching my heart like a a flash every time I enter the room. For these beauties, they are casting reflections on glass, dancing in sunlit breeze round our circle, much like children gaily swishing skirts in new Eastery dress.
Today, I exhilarate in walking out amongst them. Robins stand sentinel out on the gazebo lawn, heads tipped skyward as if listening, attuned to angel songs. Starry white blossoms are flitting, flinging, fluttering as confetti through breezy air now. It is a mixed feeling… watching them toss their heads to give way more and more to fine lace greenery. Yet, its like miniature blessings they sprinkle out over my shoulders, on my head, at my feet…
Spring…it has jumped out from hide and seek places, in riotous surprise!
I find it bursting in jaunty heads clad in whipped cream and butter bonnets, waving and beckoning to my heart. Rivers of them. Flowing, winding, cavorting over beds along the mall entrance… till there’s nothing to do but return quickly with my camera and wade in!
I hear it in soaring saxophone and spring symphony recitals!
I thank my God for it on the break of a blue and white-skied birthday morn. For Spring… ah.. I think, it comes tripping in, trailing ribbons and ribbons of blue and white!
Like waves at the ocean, rimmed in froth.
Like clouds of white stallions racing cross skies.
Like toile curtains blowing in the breeze.
Like peace and joy, rippling and chattering happily together over rocks and stream.
And…mm, maybe… the color of Heaven’s smiles.
