Spring, you keep teasing me.
The temperature dips and climbs
Like a square dance … over and under.
I should smile and enjoy the round
But my tentative moods follow too closely.
Must my spirit be so weather-informed
That I simply follow without standing firm?
Feet, touch the earth deeply. I connect.
Crown, reach to the sky expansively. I connect.
As a conductor of peace and strength, love and empowerment
I open my heart, cautiously, lovingly.
My spirit flows freely.
My heart sings. I smile. My energy lifts.
Now, I am joy!
