Do you hear this wind? Not too loud – only a good puff of air that slides over your ears like a whisper. Like pursed lips blowing syllables of contemporary ideas that tickle and excite.
Your hair dances to the sound. Tiny strands lead, lifting and flapping towards the earlobes and eyebrows.
The again of the neck shivers as tender fingers of light gusts twist and tousle even longer hair. Eyelashes wave and wiggle like lazy hula dancers.
The smells of life cross the solar and the shade. They drift alongside thawing rivers and twirl round budding bushes, grabbing scraps of contemporary life. And when the air is plump with hints of these telltale scents, it attracts nearer and affords itself to you.
Your nostrils widen, the hollows of your lungs dilate, and you may virtually style the acidity of the smells as they stream inside.
Elevate your face to the sky. Daylight seems totally different now – or perhaps it is simply shining on various things. Clouds of cottony animals scramble for consideration, begging to be named and named.
The breeze offers them wings. They gallop. Swim. Stretch eagerly on a cornflower blue canvas. Your creativeness wakes up from its deaf nap and gasps at what you see.
Tufts of mint inexperienced grass lower via the cracked filth. Wiggling worms catch the solar via the skinny blades. The birds soar between the budding branches and check every of them for the standard of the nest.
Forsythias prepared the ground with a burst of yellow; lilacs and azaleas dare to point out hints of the colours they conceal inside, braving the chilly nights in anticipation of the nurturing warmth of the morning.
The warmth, higher than what you’ve felt in months, penetrates your pores and skin. Grasping arms stick out of drained sleeves; toes squirm blindly within the suffocating darkness, begging to really feel the solar once more.
The neck cranes ahead – decided by the turtle – to bask within the warmth bouncing off the spongy backyards, muddy sidewalks and crumbling winter leaves.
You keep in mind laughing. Walks alongside the flowery paths. Kites and floating floats. The smile you’ve got stored underneath months of moldy blankets makes its strategy to the floor of your soul and bursts in spring like a cleaning soap bubble.
The world is alive once more. And also you too. However not the form of “ready” of the residing who sits quietly in entrance of a flickering hearth. No. It is a residing RUNNING-YELLING-GASPING.
And all of it reminds you of how blessed you’re to see one other supply.
