A new day

 

 

A new day

Months of white and gray fade away
as a new dawn comes. The sun breaks,
releasing colors once trapped by the
choking grasp of winter. What once was
is no more, and color is again restored.

The songbirds sing, welcoming the first breath
of a new season. Harsh winter winds warp
into soft spring breezes, carrying hopes
of soaring kites and sailing boats.
The active air becomes soothingly calm.

Rain replenishes the soil, resurfacing
the hard ground with soft grass.
Lawns once caked with deceased remnants
of fall are reborn through blossoms and bees.
The warming day’s light grants gifts of new life.

This time becomes a moment of metamorphosis,
remodeling the barren winter world with a
radiant and vibrant scenery. In the saga of seasons,
the winter’s tale is over, and the story of spring,
a recitation of romance and beauty, has just begun.
