EMBODIMENT

SPRING!

The hills and meadows are alive,
vibrant with colors rivaling
autumn’s robust, saturated display,
summer’s verdant lushness.

       Promising buds and blossoms bloom in subtle shades of
green                            maize
yellow                              violet                              pink
chartreuse                          lavender
terra cotta                       coral                        magenta
as if a pointillist had adorned each limb and stem and blade.

 

The air is alive with                                      The lake is laden with
darting swallows,                                         flashing fish,
flitting May flies,                                          dipping ducks,
gliding herons,                                              garrulous geese,
clouds sailing briskly                                    sun sparking briefly
past the sun.                                               atop each wave.
Spring honors nature’s promise.                            Earth embodies itself.

“Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it…Earth is so thick with divine possibility that it is a wonder we can walk anywhere without cracking our shins on altars.” – Barbara Brown Taylor
