A Season to Love

A Season to Love
by Jodie McCallie

Everything is brown and gray
The earth, the trees, the sky
It’s the winter of despair
It seems to go on without end
Until, as if overnight
The camelia blooms victoriously
A burst of hope in pink and red
And another day
The Japanese magnolia triumphs
Though branches still bare of leaves
Its daring display of flowers erupts
Daffodils push through
Green shoots start to appear
Even the sky on occasion is blue
And those first warming rays
Warm me right through
New life seems in the air
Possibility returns
I relish this “in between”
For all too soon the days will scorch
But right now, is a season to love
Full of beauty and promise
