As the sun gains strength and holds its head boldly in the sky,
The sheets of white slowly melt, dripping their nutrients into the soil beneath.
The skeletons of trees form new buds, and tiny fragile shoots sprout forth from the ground.
The beautiful melody of birdsong grows into a glorious choir.
Soft, gentle breezes blow into hurricane force winds,
Bringing the warmth, and blowing away the old,
The paper thin husks of last year’s bounty, shriveled into nothing.
Rebirth, the earth renews her fresh bouquet,
Her glamorous green wardrobe that feeds her children.
Such is the entrance of spring-
God’s glorious garden.
We helpers rejoice, wanting nothing more
Than to feel the living soil in our hands.
The seeds that wait patiently under the ground for the sun to shine on them,
And tell them that it’s time,
It’s time to begin anew.
They also rejoice and grow heartily, singing praises to heaven.
The flowers will open, they will bear fruit, and it will be good,
Just as God intended.
For the Earth sings for her Creator, and we are invited
To sing harmony.
