The blue beyond

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:

A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue

Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.

Even the clouds seemed to find harmony

In their own reflections.

As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —

All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

Spring sparkles

We celebrated the spring equinox

With snow and blue skies.

Blue skies

Ice drops

Sparkled from daring buds —

The fuzzy catkins

Looked lovely in their cold diamond earrings,

Ice drop

And the hazel flowers

Glittered in the sunlight.

Even though it was still winter on a spring day —

Those sparkly skies were beautiful and uplifting.

Silver spring

Last week, spring was in full bloom

With no ice on the lake

And swimming dogs in the sunset.

Swim

Today, it’s the spring equinox

And we celebrate with a silver dawn

And lots of snow.

The swans formed a heart

That seemed to be saying:

Don’t complain – just enjoy!

Dragon in the sky

How glorious a greeting

The sky gives gives

When a dragon of clouds

Sweeps in to breathe light

And colour into the world.

And on the day of the Spring Equinox,

The light declares: I’m back!

Illumination

Even a fresh snowfall couldn’t dim the joy of this time of year: the spring equinox.

A time when the light starts coming back, ice and snow recede eventually

And long evenings unfurl perfumed with flowers and warmth.

As one hemisphere gets shorter days and the other longer ones,

This Yin and Yang dance reminds me that we all share this world

And that we are all dependent on each other for balance and harmony.

I will love the light for it shows me the way.  Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.
