Springs Ascension

As Spring ascends, the earth begins to stretch its
once fruitful limbs. Removing the reminisce of the
haunting cold, death, that fell during her departure.
Slowly, as the dreary dark dismal dreamscape begins
to fade. The rich and warm illumination of spring
begins to reveal life.

The plants emerge, gasping for the sweet and supple
fresh air. Finally breathing, they emit a vibrancy of
chromaticity: I once knew and longed to meet again.
Slowly, with each step up the twisting, lamenting.
staircase, the air becomes increasingly electrifying.
Excitement swoons, as the weighted blanket of death
and infertility is lifted. Revealing the beautiful and
bountiful sustenance I cherished so long ago.

As Madam Spring makes her way across this plane, the
air fills with the alluring sweet smell of blooms and
The animals awaken, for they too feel this passionate
and fertile shift in nature. The creatures embrace and
dance in this newfound excitement.
As Spring ascends, so does life; for the Earth is awake
once again.

About this poem

It's in reflection of loosing my old self, and gaining a whole new vibrant world full of support, encouragement, and beauty. It is also a tribute to the goddess of spring, Perstephanie. She has been a huge inspiration for me. She overcame her traumas and took control of both sides of her being. Becoming a powerful and fearless leader. She became equal ruler of the underworld, as her counterpart Hades. She also holds so much power in the waking world by influencing the coming of and going of spring and winter. She equally represents life and death. She teaches her followers how to obtain a symbotic relationship between they're light and dark halfs.
