Retreating to Spring
As I reflect on the garden these days,
I find my mind retreating
to the spring colors,
of bulbs popping up-
the subtle greens emerging
and dotting the brown wet soil.
Of beginning again…always a new start.

March means spring is on its way…even if the weather is cold and snowy. We know it isn’t far off. And as spring approaches, the bulbs start to pop up with the snow’s retreat.
With our unusually warm weather, the snow retreated already and bulbs are up. I am renewed each spring as if my life has the beautiful gift of starting over…..nothing is the same, and I am ready for all the new wonders about to be shown!
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog, and Sanaa@A Dash of Sunny for her Prompt Nights every Friday. I am not sure if this poem fits with the ‘Faith, healing’ theme, but the new growth of spring is my healing…it is where I find my spiritual place!
