Rising Spring

Rising Spring

The rising sun glows red -

gleams on the morning lake

as a sharp breeze from the sea

clears away night’s fog

and leaves nothing but

a trail of thin pink clouds.

The nearly absolute emptiness

of early spring is awoken by

a frenzied burst of color

and vibrations of myriad voices

which saturate the warming air

filling the soul with delight.
