Burst of Color, Burst of Joy


Spring trees blossom quickly
One day branches are bare
The next dotted with buds
Then little green leaves appear
And suddenly, a burst of color

It happens year after year
Still, it is a happy surprise
An ordinary miracle-
An extraordinary little
Burst of joy

    Such a lovely poem that brings in narrative elements, while imparting an appreciation for the yearly repetition of wonder at this natural sequence. Love that line: “An ordinary miracle.”

    It is something how blossoms and leaves seem to appear overnight.
