Barefoot Dreams of Spring
Meadow of wildflowers
On the forest edge
How many months have you laid sleeping
Seedlings awaiting the thaw of spring?
So patiently you have endured
Beneath the frozen earth
The life inside you - the spark of rebirth
Quiet, but burning still.
Until the perfect moment is upon you
When the snow has retreated and the sunshine returned
A firecracker of life
Exploding from the nourishing Earth.
In the souls of my feet, I can feel
New journeys waiting to be embarked upon
New adventures eager to be had
New paths ready to be forged
When dreams and discovery merge
And we become creative masters of our own destiny
Watching as it unfolds effortlessly before our eyes
With great courage, we venture into the forest.
