When Spring Comes

20 Apr

by Valerie Moreno

I rejoice when Spring comes,

after so long a time

needing rebirth and light.


Sounds of singing birds,

sweet scent of lilac and rose

assure me life begins again.


Flashes of grief come

when I recall blue sky and greenery

I only know now in memory.


Still, in dreams, I see the vibrance

my brain hasn’t forgotten

like my silent eyes.
