Mother Nature slips into her finery,
a pretty pastel floral dress,
dabs on a bit of her favorite
lavender and lilac scent.
She pulls the shades of winter to
allow the sunshine in.
The weather warms the earth,
begins Springs cycle once again.
Baubles of emerald sprout on
no longer dormant trees.
Gardens erupt in kaleidoscopic color.
Flowers dancing in the breeze.
Birds unseen all winter long,
busy building nests in chosen bower.
Humming birds and butterflies gather
nectar while kissing every flower.
Flowers show their faces,
smiling at the sun.
Baby chicks come out to play
as shells become undone.
