Waiting for spring

HPIM2520

I sit in my swing and train my eyes

to the sky as blue as a robin’s egg,

and wish for a lawn all fragrant and green

as the freshly cut flowers’ leaves and stems.

I sit in my swing and wait for spring

like two doves on a branch in the tree

waiting also for warm weather like me.

I sit in my swing and wait for spring

and let the warm sun bathe my face

thinking all the ways I will enjoy warm days

while old snow melts leaving no trace.

I sit in my swing and wait for spring

looking at the ways I can garden and bring

new life to the roots of all that lay

dormant through the winter until this May

when the scent of lilac and roses I smell

while I sit in my swing and enjoy the spring,

and listen to the choir of birds that sing.

Spring Roses


Garden fresh bright red

Roses fill my crystal vase

Bringing spring indoors

Sunny Days


I can hardly wait

For bright sunny days to come

To plant my spring blooms

A Sweet Smelling Fragrance

A Sweet Smelling Fragrance

By: Joyce E. Johnson

Like the sweet-smelling fragrance

of lilacs in bloom, so is His essence that

wafts forth from my soul;

It permeates the air of my

all-consuming space.

I stand in awe, at the wonder of it all

how He could create one such as me,

  and love unconditionally with infinite grace.
