Springtime Serenade


I bask in the beauty of bright blue skies

feeling the warm caress of the sun on my skin

The scent of fresh earth fills my nostrils

grounding me

The sweet melody of the robin fills the air

as green buds too, burst forth in song

Springtime’s serenade reverberates within me

breathing new life into my senses

I wrote this yesterday while I was outside enjoying the lovely weather we had.  Seriously, the warm sun on my skin felt so amazing, and the blue of the sky was glorious!  It was so delightful to hear the birds singing and to smell the scent of dirt again.  What… you don’t like the smell of dirt?  😉

Then I noticed these buds sprouting on my lilacs and seeing that fresh, new spring green made me feel like new too.

What a gift the changing of the seasons is.  It really is the simple things that bring me joy.


Wishing you joy today…

    • We took her out for a walk in her stroller and she seemed a bit distressed at first – sensory overload maybe? But then she closed her eyes and went to sleep and had a really deep, sound, long nap. There’s nothing like nature’s soothing lullaby! 🙂


  3. Lovely feelings you evoked Julie. I’m with you on simple joys being the best, especially those first few days of spring! I’m glad you’re enjoying Noelle and spring!

  4. I love the smell of dirt, and the feeling of sun on my skin (when it’s not too hot.) This past week has been mostly rain for us, but I won’t complain, spring knows just what to do 🙂

    • Thanks Lois, wishing you one too, and a wonderful week ahead! I would love to do that one day. This past Christmas, my daughter had a coffee table book made up for me using some of my poems and photos, it was so thoughtful and it turned out lovely!
