Spring Awakening

With spring comes the necessity of all that’s new,

New life, babies, flings, relationships, and few

Appreciate the changes that swing in spring.

The wind lightens into a soothing breeze,

The sun warms your frozen new bones to appease

Your growing need to bask in the sun’s kiss.

As the rain drips, falls, and poors into the solified

Ground that has preserved life in a cryogenic state

That keeps everything in a scenic embrace as if framed.

Framed by what looks like a dying ecosystemed

That slowly crawls back to life like a recently awakened

Turtle ambling at a lollylag pace that seems to Creep.

Time, like the turtle, inches forward trying to break your bones,

That solid structure that holds your flesh in place, tries

To keep you from embarrassment by keeping you upright.

However, time, the unseen entity, ephemeral, and intangible

Runs like an athlete, seeping your youth, turning it

To wisdom, faith, uniqueness, healing, power in old age.

Espouse your frailty by striving for perfection

Knowing only God adheres to that image,

While ‘man’ is inherently flawed but humane.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
