Spring

Winter seemed reluctant to release it’s hold.
Or was it Spring?
Reluctant to emerge into the world,
Like a breech birth; she will emerge eventually, it is unavoidable.
But, there is danger!
For both Mother and Child, there is danger.
Why can’t this be easier?
“Do we bud now?” ask the plants.
“Should we bloom now?” ask the buds.
A late freeze endangers everything.
Pray for a turn in the womb.
Pray for a smooth emergence of new life.
