How sweet the sounds of spring-
baby birds awakening to new life,
pubescent trees laughing in sunshine,
promised rains knocking on driveways.
How sweet the sounds, the smells-
humid air pregnant with honeysuckle,
grasses sighing after springtime rain,
flowerbeds fresh from sunny ovens.
How sweet the sights of spring-
a world awash in rainbow hues,
promise of life after ancient winter,
watercolor greens and blushing yellows.
How sweet the start of spring-
that season of arousal, giving birth
to long awaited blush of color,
wellspring of consciousness.
