Poem in hope of Spring
Jennifer J. Craig
Soon the season will change
the fields will become green
and the earth will release a fragrance into the air that cannot be duplicated
the sun will rise early
warming the dirt and our bodies too
leaving us with darkness only after we have had our fill
we will be satiated again
lungs with air, minds with color
our essence free to explore all the crevices of this world
be deliberate in motion.
from experience I know
that this time of gray will end
summer will arrive and allow us to be full of zest again.
