Color of Spring

The color of the spring woods is pale and delicate. Small leaves on the branches bring a yellow green light. Even the deep red purple of the rebud blooms seems fragile among the dark browns and charcoal gray of the trees.

But this apparent frailty belies the strength and power of spring. The surging sap, the rumbling roots, the burgeoning buds and frantic flowers. Shoots burst through the soil, growing at an amazing rate in the warm air. Birds and frogs sing loud mating songs, unashamed of their intentions.

Spring is a power that will not be stopped. It may be delayed but it will not be stopped. Let the riot that is spring begin!
