Sap is flowing once again from root to trunk,
from trunk to branch,
to every leaf
on the tree.
The frozen days are past.
Now is the season of flowering,
when the full force of energy moves up
to manifest its destiny.
It is everything to me,
this new life springing forth
from ash and compost,
this chance to nurture,
to patiently receive the miracle that blooms
as if no force on earth
can turn aside its beauty.

ps……….I’ve been in the garden for days now and nature has rewarded me with a bloom on my clematis vine. Finally!!!
