Spring Unfurls

Birdcalls break morning silence.

Purple, yellow, green, replace brown,

as earthy scents defrost.

Ferns uncoil and warmer breezes caress.

Trees sway in jubilation.

One thought on “Spring Unfurls

  1. I love this poem. Perhaps the long yearning we have for spring makes it all the sweeter when we finally get a few glimmers of hope.
