Flash Friday 55: Spring Awakening

Afterlife on the Ipod
deer frolicking in the glade
songbirds serenade morning sun
as fog begins to fade

trees dress in finest glory
of colorful buds so awesome
heralding spring that’s coming
as new life begins to blossom

sunlight dapples dewy trails
tickling the runner’s cheeks
she pauses to behold beauty
of nature’s glorious mystique


I penned the above quite quickly, before the feelings subsided. For these were the sounds and images that greeted me as I began this most amazing day.

That sounds like a wonderful morning!

In the last few days, the birds have returned to my yard. I hear them singing when we leave for school in the morning. It's a nice way to start the day after such a long winter.

Now that the weather has warmed, I started running outside again—your 55 reminds me of why I love this time of year.

Betty Manousos said...

Wow! your 55 makes me want to abandon my laptop and enjoy the sunshine outside.

Spring is the air...
...thanks for your beautiful words.

Omg I needed that.
So thank you again. :)

Happy weekend, my wonderful friend!

Indeed this does sound Idyllic. I too have the hint of Spring in my world, but deer isn't the wildlife I spied in my 55

Wonderful except for one thing - lose the iPod.
