She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”

Let’s think spring
Uplifting thoughts

Nature renewing
Time for growth

Taking long walks
Love in the air

Symbols of love
Feeling of joy

Coming together
Creating new life

I attend to this moment
less it goes unattended
by the bee flying
in and out of time
only to be lost in a
wild thyme unseen
just to be conquered 
and reconciled again.
