Springtime’s Dance

I wrote this poem last Spring as an exercise in the art of noticing. It’s happy and short — capturing a brief scene of Spring’s green beauty. There is always much to be noticed and enjoyed all around us in the simple nature of things. This is particularly so when the earth returns to life in Springtime. Notice. Enjoy. Give thanks to the Maker. New life is everywhere.

The sweet gum’s star leaves flap
Like birds’ wings alighting
Dancing so cheerfully
Dappled with sunlight’s rays
And the wind whips them ‘round
As their waltzing partner
