Crocuses Spring Up

we feel the icy winds.
      as snow blankets
   everything in sight.

   bright lights drive
dark secrets from
      our chilly world.

days begin to grow
   noticeably longer
soon after solstice.

      then warmth will  
radiate from on high.

it has always been
      as long as any
      can remember

we might know what 
   we need to move 

confidently into 
      our safe future

soon after snowmelt,
   crocuses spring up.

waking springtime,
      a season of joy
   and excitement.

  1. Here It Goes, Now It Comes

    December twenty-one, The dark has reached its longest hour. Light has breached the dark, the power Of the longer night is gone, Light’s dawn holds sway. Daylight grows which means Winter’s day and night are even.m We in Sweden cheer again. Cheeriness can disappear While winters dominating force is here.

    Ah, this dormant time of year! Optimism in the air, Bear and baby in their lair Preparing for a honey-ed spring And any other things they’re eating, We, immersed in singing birds Back to house’s porch and yard, Enjoying light and what we’ve heard. From tomorrow, Ten more months Of borrowed time. So from now, I’m celebrating. Here It Goes, Now It Comes 12.21.2021 Nature Of & In Reality; Arlene Nover Corwin

      We are just past the winter solstice and expect to see less darkness and more light. Life has been good and we are excited to see what adventures are just ahead.
