“The Greening”

“The Greening”

“Time moves forward don’t live backwards” 
― E’yen A. Gardner

Spring, that time of year when the Earth groans and stretches after a winter slumber. Freshness is everywhere and the forest is transformed as branches begin to fill with fresh green leaves. Buds open and expand their contents to the sun, reaching for nourishment.

This ‘greening’ only seems to last a few days and the forest is a soft canvas of greens and yellows and every shade between. It’s a few days of completed freshness, before the insects begin feasting and the sun slowly dries and bleaches the colours. Many of the leaves, like these, will darken more as chlorophyll fills the cells. But for now, for this brief time, I will revel in the soft ‘greening’ of spring.

It’s a reminder to me, as the quote states, that life and time move forward, without exception, as the cycle continues toward summer, never the same, always new and slightly different.
