Day 103: Spring Sunrise

Awaken my sleeping world
Shake off the fogs of winter
Unfurl the sweet fragrant buds
Draw in the rays of the
Strengthening sun.

Watch the shadows slip away
Fresh breezes that chase
The lingering sorrows
Unfreezing dormant pains
Vaporizing the fears that
Held you back.

As the spring dawn encroaches
My winter blues disperse
Bring forth the colours
That lay waiting
For the season’s warm breath
To arouse

A new painting of the world
New stories to tell
The rebirth of life
And the embracing of change.

So spring sunrise,
shine bright
Awaken my sleeping world
So that I may rejoin
The living.
