All about Becky …

{14 March 2008}   Hidden spring

The world is grey today

and wet

but beneath the damp earth

and inside the tiny buds

new life waits, poised

We complain about the rain, the cold, the wind

but who are we to argue with the elements

and the timeless cycle of the seasons

This water is the water of life

The flowers are showing their colourful faces already

splashes of colour against the sodden verges and hedgerows

Soon the sun will come back

equinox time is near, the growing light

returns to bathe and warm us

after the winter’s inward time

So blessed are we to live in this green and precious land

The earth beneath my feet is strong and solid

and my heart can feel the spring

as yet unsprung
