Have you ever actually felt
a ray of sunshine
as it caresses your skin,
warms your body,
brightens up the darkness
until it has you yearning for more?

of the dogwoods along my walks.
Nature’s beauty surrounds and abounds.
Winter’s fury seems long past today,
and memories of Spring’s
innocent demeanor conjures photographs
of unfurled leaves swaying in
