Thoughts on Spring

It has been another busy week and I am feeling rather tired with all the packing so I am offering you today a poem I wrote several years ago. It is published in my book ‘Sacred Journey- Sacred Earth’. It is still as relevant today as it was when I wrote it.

‘The hope of Spring’

Watching the new spring leaves unfurl
Gives me hope in a chaotic world;
New growth springs from the dark
Of the winter and makes its mark.
Signs of growth are everywhere,
The birds and trees all doing their share.
So in this dark material world
Is there light ready to be unfurled?

Can we look inside our hearts today
To find a better more spiritual way?
To live without such ugly greed
And only have what we truly need.
We do not need large houses and cars;
We do not need to travel to Mars;
Some clothes and food and a rainproof roof
Are really, truly, quite enough.

So watch the new spring growth today
And think about a spiritual way
To live your life with love and care
And cherish all, if you dare!
