Sunrise


Sunrise over the inlet in Tofino


The sun comes up over the mountains
like the hills are giving birth
to the new day,
and my heart leaps up
to see crocuses poking 
their little heads through the ground,
bringing forth a new spring,
full of birdsong
and croaking frogs.

The celebration has begun!
We are all invited to the feast.
Enjoy the bounty!
