Flirting With Spring!


All of creation is swooning with spring fever! Twitterpated birds thread fearlessly through budding trees, flirt-wrestling mid-air, and trilling love songs from the highest branches. Flowers boldly push through the stubborn earth, reborn and beautiful; beckoning weary souls to pause and bend their bored noses toward their buttery blossoms.

Sparkling breezes transport sunshine on their wingtips; arousing the senses from their wintry tombs, and resurrecting adolescent passions; the heavy sweetness of love’s breath ….seeking soft lips, and awakening a hunger for… more… more… more!

Windows swung open, like smiling mouths, invite the outside in….and the inside out. Everything seems acutely intense; music, colors, smells, tastes, until you find yourself intoxicated with sensory overload, batting your eyelashes like a shameless flirt, and wantonly kicking off your shoes as you join in the rapturous springtime dance….and fall in love with life all over again!

Spring is the seasonal equivalent of a grand celebration of life where Mother Earth explodes with extravagance, showing off her finest attributes, inspiring us to remember the promises of our youth and our desires for new beginnings…. until everything old seems new again…. and catching falling stars is an attainable goal!

I get very blonde during spring time and I do not mean my hair coloring.

This post means so much because here in PA we had snowfall as late as 10 days ago, the grass is still yellowish and trying to recover, no flowers in sight except for a few neighbors' efforts to plant tulips in a few square feet in front of their house, LOL.

But I do feel newly energized, so that must mean that something is afoot even here...

Leah Griffith said...

Yes Chris even PA is vulnerable lol! I'm glad that "something" is afoot....get ready for the fever ;)

I know Leah...I crave springtime here in the land of perpetual sunshine. The birds here are amazing though and they know it's spring.. they're such show offs ;)
I miss you.

Oh wow, another great post. We've recently had some good weather and can well believe we're going to have a summer here in England (my favourite part of the yeah). You have such a way with words, the way you weave them is beautiful, the post was almost poetic.

Leah Griffith said...

I'm assuming Kris that your summer in England is much like ours in say maybe Virginia. Thank you for your sweet words....happy spring ;)

Jayne said...

Beautiful, Leah. I'm just back from Canada, where there weren't many signs of Mother Nature's spring explosion. But upon entering New England, I saw that she had been at work. It was very reassuring. ;)
