Sometimes it’s hard to see the signs of spring,
because they’re hidden
in the buds of the apple tree
and the tingle of warmth on the breeze.
The surprise of spring can bursts through
with the first instance of a single pastel tulip
the soft buzz of a bumblebee over a dandelion
and the sudden burst of sun on your face.
The signs get hidden by darkness and chill
but soon, the renewal will be all around.
