Now the Dormant Trees Awaken from Their Winter Slumber

By PoeticMeditations

Now the dormant trees awaken from their winter slumber,
Stretch their branches upwards towards the radiant sun.
From deep roots rise the nurturing sap now unencumbered;
Emerge the tender buds – the resurrection has begun.

Bathed in the luxuriant rays of summer’s radiance,
Each vibrant leaf now bursts forth in growing exuberance,
Spread their regal canopy in emerald brilliance
To dance in the soft wind’s breath as it bobs each laden branch.

All too soon the days will shorten; the sky turn ashen gray.
Drop one by one the blushing leaves of autumn’s gentle kiss.
After the harvest bounty, the quiet land will fallow lay,
As each tree falls asleep to dream again of summer’s bliss.
