Spring



My hungry heart
whimpers like a dog
that wants to stay out of the rain.
My hungry heart
awakens 
to the shades of green in the grass
and the blue of the sky,
breathtakingly limitless.
The senses sharper
with the birth of spring.
The smell of life new.
Empty holes, filled with
 beauty and sorrow,
with blessings and loss,
overtake the moment.
Untouched
but seen.
Seen
and felt 
underneath our skin.
