Spring's Resurrection

In spring the resurrection from winter’s cold tomb

Brings new life once again as flowers start to bloom.

All creation sings a joyous song of spring

As renewal of life brings fresh life to everything.

 

The earth’s crust is cracked by a hidden power,

And what emerges then is a stem, leaf and flower.

The icy grave of winter where no life can be seen

Transforms into a vibrant, living carpet of green.

 

Fresh hope arrives with the springtime air

That our lives that once had seemed lifeless and bare,

Like the earth to which fresh life returns,

Can find the renewal for which each soul yearns.

 

Spring’s resurrection coincides with Easter too –

All life that has ended God is able to renew.

Since Christ conquered death there’s no longer separation,

And we can join in singing the song of creation.

"Since Christ conquered death thereā??s no longer separation,

And we can join in singing the song of creation."

The whole poem is wonderful, but those last two lines ... precious.

Connie,
Sorry, I've been at church every evening and just now getting to your site.
I love your poem. Anything about flowers, trees, mountains, etc. is a joyful consideration. You do well with this poem. Spring, indeed, reflects Chris'ts resurrection.
Blessings,
Bertha

Connie, I'm just now getting to your site. I've been to revival services every night this week. I love this poem! Budding flowers, greening trees, flowing streams, and singing birds make delightful poetry. Spring is a reflection of Christ's resurrection.
Blessings,
Bertha

Just Beautiful, Connie! This poem reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures... "Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life, and creates new things out of nothing." Romans 4:17
