That spark …

The rarity of that moment

like the day

you pick the flowers

in spring

and the air smells of lavender

a vision of your journey

as bright

as the sparkling stars

With these fleeting days

and through the passage of time

the season bursts

beauty of life

  3. Your images of the magic of spring ring out here, Iris. In the northern hemisphere we are experiencing the opposite, in autumn, and it feels different, but no less magical. Lovely and thought-provoking poem, my friend–

The amazing wonders of nature with its colour and beauty give us that moment of joy when we see the growth and experience the creativity of life… It’s like in life, the energy and passion, an interest to create that spark! Enjoy your season there and thanks so much for your reflection, my friend. 🙂
