Bubbly feelings

Spring is that celebration of

Bright surprises;

Of new buds daring to bloom.

It’s that warm fizzy feeling that bubbles up

From the inside in an explosion of petal and joy.

Sometimes, its dewiness trembles on a flower

So that it seems to swim in the air like a petalled fish.

And sometimes, those winter remnants remind us that endings

Can be the seeds of new beginnings.

  2. If viewing the flowers and views on your site LadyFi does not make one want to go hiking and see, smell, and experience nature, I am not sure what will.

    Fantastic.
