Postcards from Paradise: Spring Magic

I emerged from the cocoon of illness
to find the world ablaze with color

-- pools of light --

and diverse things clamoring for attention
like an unruly child  

or a squeaky wheel just waiting for grease

Everywhere I look

I see reminders of this quote by Ellis Peters

Every spring is the only spring -- a perpetual astonishment.



Astonished is the word- spring puts on such a mighty pretty show.

You are so right, the glare of colour after dimmed days of illness makes you want to just revel in the senses! x
