Wordless Spring

Tender limes on spiny stems

Bravely push to journey’s end;

Seeking sun and  studious growth,

Learning how to balance both

As factories of sugar sweet

Begin to pulse in hands and feet.

Opening hearth for nests of birds,

You scream Spring, but use no words.

This is a miniature ‘Bird’s Nest Spruce’.  I somehow missed publishing this one this spring.  Now, with autumn’s approach, here is a quick peek back to the beginning of the growing season!

    Oh wow, the photo is particularly nice–“soft”–of course, I love the whole thing and will be longing for spring sooner than I like to think, I’m sure. God bless you Melody–love, Caddo
