New Growth

It’s been quite a year.

Storms of all sorts.

Yesterday, just after the rain

A purple-heavy rainbow lit the sky.

Hinting of permanent change with

Fresh hope for something new.

Wet on my morning walk today.

Baptized by water blessings from the trees.

Tiny blades of grass

Sweetly waving hello.

Have you noticed the new growth?

The trees are doing very well this year,

Inches of new bright green sprouts.

The roses and blackberries already lush at the

Beginning of their season too.
