Our life journey contain many twists and turns and we all make mistakes along the way. And yet, Spring returns
I write, erase, rewrite. Erase again, and then…
A poppy blooms
Quote: Hokusai, 1760 – 1849, Japanese painter, printmaker
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”

Hope where we had ceased to hope.
Hope amid what threatens hope.
Hope with those who feed our hope.
Hope beyond what we had hoped.
Hope that draws us past our limits.
Hope that defies expectations.
Hope that questions what we have known.
Hope that makes a way where there is none.
Hope that takes us past our fear.
Hope that calls us into life.
Hope that holds us beyond death.
Hope that blesses those to come.

You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming.
Quote: Pablo Neruda
“When spring came, even the false spring,
there were no problems except where to be happiest.”
Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
