The Miracle of March

Musings on March, both the month and the season of the soul. Also, I did something fun with this poem. 😉

Maybe this time

All our hopes of light and warmth won’t be

Ripped away by wind,

Captured by the clinging cold spring can’t seem to shake,

Hurled and shattered on frosted blades.

Maybe this time

All my hopes of change and growth won’t be

Ripped to shreds by shame,

Captured by the clinging nature I can’t seem to shake,

Hurled and shattered on stubborn sin.

Miracles are signs of spring, they say,

Although this time it feels like

Riots and relapse are all these

Changes in season see fit to bring me—

Hope, anyone? Healing? Where are they?

Maybe pain must precede peace,

All that winter before the warmth,

Riots in the soul before the rest;

Calm before the storm—or is it after?

How about dancing through the storm into the sun?

  1. This is all so, SO true about spring. It’s a time of change and growth for nature as well as for us. I wrote a poem in a similar vein a couple years ago that connected the change of seasons with a change in perspective that helped me get over a period of situational depression. So I know exactly what you’re saying here. 🙂

    The poem itself also has a wonderful sense of flow and great word choice. Very smooth, concise, and full of imagery. Great job!

  2. So lovely!
    This is all too much how I feel right now.
    Especially:
    “Miracles are signs of spring, they say,
    Although this time it feels like
    Riots and relapse are all these
    Changes in season see fit to bring me—
    Hope, anyone? Healing? Where are they?”

    LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS: “How about dancing through the storm into the sun?”

    I’m sure it’s calm before and after the storm.
