New Year's Eve In the Spring

Spring...similiar to New Year's Eve.
For it's much anticipated new beginning
Feeling that life offers new chances.

Missing is the intense build up.
Watching the clock for the moment
When midnight strikes and fireworks explode.

Instead it's a gently unfolding process.
Daily greening with buds slowly unfurling.
Much like the becoming we experience
As we run, crawl, and dance
Through this blessing we call life.

Spring offers the gently prodding reminder.
It's not about a magical minute.
It's about the many magical minutes
That have helped us to grow.

Linking up to Six Word Fridays: Inspired by the word~ Spring


  1. Oh, I just love this! Not A magical minute, but the MANY! So glad to hear your voice ~ hope all is well. I'm looking forward to a very low-key weekend ... rest, reading, walking, refreshment.
    Hugs from Massachusetts!

  2. Love this! My pace slowed as I watched each unfurling through your words.

  3. This is just how I feel
    about spring. Gradual and renewing, both.

  4. Those little gentle things prime your mind and suddenly you've hardly noticed and spring is in full bloom.

  5. A simply beautiful post.

  6. This is beautiful. I loathe New Years...much more of a 'slow down the pace and let it unfurl' kind of girl :)

  7. Hi Kristi, have been watching for your post and what do you know, I'm 3 days late. LOL. I love new beginnings and new years too. This year has been a roller coaster ride and you're right, Spring, deserves our thorough attention. Watch for things to bloom and unfurl. So beautiful to see flowers, trees and grass turns green and watch nature unfold it's beauty. Always nice to read your posts.

  8. Love this, Kristi. I hope you are well. :)

  9. Just dropping by to see if everything is okay. Pray you are well and that your family is well too.

  10. Happy Easter Kristi! Hope you and yours have a great holiday!

  11. Hello Kristi, once again I hope everything is well. It's been a busy year. This 2012. Can you believe June is almost halfway over? Wow, time sure flies. Have a great Summer. God bless.
