A Greening Road

A Greening Road

As Winter gives way
And Spring Begins
To sneak in
One little leaf at a time
The road I’ve traveled each
And every day
Begins to show me
The color I hadn’t realized
I’d forgotten

Bright green
The hue of life
Popping from buds
Long dormant,
Declaring life
Renewed, vibrant
Producing energy

Ken Goree

Expect to see this poem continued on.  Locust Way, which runs between Kenmore and Lynnwood, Washington, is the road that inspired me.  Here in Western Washington, green never leaves us completely.  However, today, March 27th 2011 was the day that I really felt life finding its way into this new year.
