Everyone breathed easier at the first signs of spring. The creatures and the plant life all were ready for the new cycle of life to start. It was a hard and long winter this year and it was with a lot of jubilation that coming of spring was greeted with!

Snowdrops pushed through the hard soil bravely and were happy to see that the forest trees were turning green with tiny buds. Birds and animals alike were overcome with the joy of the new season!

Thunder In The Sky ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

There is thunder in the sky
Matching the thunder in my head
Lightning flashes light the night
Igniting my love for you
The eagle cries in the night
As it rides the wind
Reminding us of our love for each other
As dawn approaches
The storms taper off
The sky becomes a shade of pink orange
That few have ever seen
It is reminding us to celebrate
The good in our lives

~The Tennessee Poet~
