Poetry – Waking Up

Waking Up

I woke today to a blue sky

And bright sunshine.

Pink and white blossom

Gaily gleamed on the trees.

Bright green buds,

Responding to the warmth,


Spilling forth their nascent green

To dress the bush and tree

In fresh verdant uniform.

All so bright and cheerful,

So new and fresh.

Today it felt as if the world had woken up.

I love the reawakening of nature. The birds are singing, nesting and the world feels fresh.

It is as if we have a new start.

I wish we could wipe the slate clean and really begin again. What a great world we could make.
