Spring Is Here: A Guest Post

In my absence I will be featuring some great guest posters.  Today I’m happy to introduce a gal that I consider a friend and all around spaz much like myself.  :)  You have probably seen me feature her work in various giveaways and I’m so excited to have her guest posting today.

Be sure to check out her blog:  The Robertson Clan

PastedGraphicTiny verdant life

in the early morning mist

tucked away safe, still

from the night

leaves of emerald light.


As Ra rears his

brilliant fiery head

silence fades into

a cacophony of sound

what is lost, now is found.


Aurora shakes her cloak

of many colors

delicate buds begin the dance

fragile yet, strong as they unfold

a holy wonder to behold.


A tiny fawn, unsteady yet

on softly cloven feet

shakes the sleep from his head

and begins to plan this new day

butterflies to chase in play.


Yet as we wake

Father Owl goes to sleep

Hello and Goodbye in the same breath

he turns his back with ruffled feathers

a safeguard against fowl weather.


Still as stone I sit

as I meditate, a smile on my lips

a silent farewell to mother night

finding joy in each new down

flower petals to wish upon.


A tender breeze brushes,

dancing across my skin, and onward

pirouetting through fields of flowers

invoking life like a flame

innocence man cannot tame.


There is an unnoticed and quiet sincerity

in the coming of each new dawn

an unbroken promise

to bring new breath, after night

sleeps again, in an endless flight.


Life begins anew each day

coming forth on the zephyr-like wind

pure as a child’s laugh

it wipes clean the worries of your heart

when you day begins with the song of a lark.
