Awake,awake little green shoot child
Awake to greet the Spring
You have been deep asleep within Mother Earth
You have been gathering all the minerals and energies needed for new growth
Push up,break through Mother Earths solid mantel
Now it is time to greet the Spring
Breathe in the fresh, clean air
Sway in her gentle breezes
Taste the light Spring rain
Feel the warmth of the Spring sun on your face
Awake, awake little green shoot child
Awake to greet the spring

Love and light Marie

  7. Hi Marie, thank you so much for visiting my blog yesterday. I'm absolutely floored by your talent in felting, which is a craft I have only just picked up in the last few days and have fallen head over heels for! It's also super exciting to meet another crafter from the Southern Hemisphere as well. I visited Auckland last year and loved it so much. I would be thrilled to settle down in New Zealand some day.

  8. Lovely, poetic springtime words, Marie.
