A Day in Spring
There are many ways you can think of spring. You could think of it as a time of happiness or fun, but I like to think of spring as a new beginning. It is the time of year when flowers bloom, trees turn green, and animals come out after hibernation, after a cold, colourless winter. It is an achievement for people and animals alike because it means that you have gotten past another hard winter, and things are going to get easier. Spring is a beautiful time of year, and is so nice because of the bloom of plants, the birds and animals, and all the colour everywhere.
Imagine this, it is a cool, breezy day, and you are going for a walk outside. Everywhere around you, trees are slowly turning green, flowers bloom all around you, and everything seems so bright. When you look around, and breathe the crisp spring air, you decide to explore. Splashing through icy puddles, you walk through the freshly budding trees, and smell the fresh air. While walking through the woods, you look up, and in the branches, birds of all colours are chirping happily in the trees. Bright blue jays, glowing orange orioles, and electrifying yellow goldfinches. You look down to see soft green grass, and lie down in it, looking at the cloudy blue sky. You watch the fluffy, pure white clouds, that seem to be cotton candy. You feel the warm sun on your body, and your eyelids slowly close…
Waking up, you roll onto you stomach, you see a deer close by you. You examine the creamy brown coat, and the graceful way the deer walks on the moist, green grass. Getting up it runs away startled, bounding across the forest floor. You notice a particularly big oak try, towering in size, and you decide to climb it, digging you hands into the rough, brown bark. You climb up to a large, stable branch. At this height, you can see all around the forest, the hues of colour coming from the nearing sunset. As you marvel at the sunset, looking at the beautiful blends of orange, red, pink and purple, it reminds you of a painting, but seems to have an unnatural glow, that you cannot find in a one. You look around at the newly blooming trees, different colours everywhere from the glow of the final light. Looking up, you see the far away lights from the stars, as the daylight ebbs away. You slowly climb down the tree, digging into the jagged bark to slow yourself down. Jumping off, the soft dirt absorbs the impact, and makes you appreciate how much has changed since winter. It is not the same as it was 3 months ago.
It will soon be possible to go swimming, and the hot summer will be here soon bringing sports like soccer and baseball back the communities. You know that it will soon be time to go camping, and fishing in the coming warmth. Fields will be planted and bring life to them. There will be a lot to look forward to in the coming spring.
