Deciduous trees start with a delicate beauty
And end in vibrant hues again.
The tree’s true colors are exposed.
There is no holding back,
conforming to standards
or blending in.
To spend the rest of your days
in that beautiful authentic expression
is something to behold and cherish.
without concern of backlash.
I celebrate the new blooms.
They remind me of a fresh start
And the excitement of something new.
Fragile like the robin’s nest
Sturdy and well made
But too low to the ground.
Not enough protection to promote healthy offspring.
Life is all around us.
The birds are learning too.
They must feel loss.
The robins lost their shelter, their home base.
Is it too late to try again?
Is nature a cruel teacher?
Not so if it prevents future loss of life.
We don’t punish the birds.
It’s the nature of things.
And death too is a part of that cycle
Whether we like it or not.
And we are a part of nature.
It can never be removed
No matter how urban and modern our surroundings.
The pink blossoms are in their full glory
And I am delighted.
