"Sometimes We Make Room"

And old cliche whispered to me this day
in Holland, Michigan where skies were grey
and yet color found its way to come out and play
with our hearts which seemed yearning for change
and there was one reason for this season
to greet me discretely…

picturesque in part
where one stem would end, and where one would start
but it was different this year
because there was joy so near
and not so far off into the distance
or at least in this instance

for this was the spring
where i learned to let go
to what any day could bring
after the winter, after the snow
for sometimes we make room
for those special things to bloom…

An enduring winter was washed away when April’s showers did not stay beyond a little while. Perhaps a spring would have to share its season and forego the smooth segway that our childhood stories spoke of. There rested on the window the downpour from the day before as the morning light showered upon the trees now budding with their first leaves of the year. Perhaps it was unsurprising to those neighboring evergreens that could never relate to. And yet for any oak or birch tree, this was a sight not only to see, but to savor. And so I looked within and wondered what season my heart was in- if it was ready to reclaim the joy that lay dormant from blankets of apparel that could only serve as a surrogate to true warmth from the once frigid weather. This fresh canvas of spring leaves was greeting me, and then I knew that my joy was reborn after these rainy days…
