The Cleansing Tide
Evergreen branches shimmy and sway
as the wintry breeze blows…
A blanketing of whispers
beneath the hush of snow.
Fingers of sunshine caress the earth
as the robin takes wing…
A drop of water shall be returned
with a burst of spring.
Shooting stars blaze rocket red
against velvet indigo night sky…
In a cradle of verdant meadows,
crickets sing their lullaby.
Emotions tumble to the ground
in a bed of crimson and gold…
Harvest moon rises on the horizon,
a sight to behold.
Subtle changes in the seasons
are impossible to miss…
Like the heated crescendo
of a passionate kiss.
Apprehensions and misgivings
stir the turmoil inside…
Love heals the wounded heart,
a gentle, cleansing tide.

Inspired by the Chinese Proverb:
A drop of water shall be returned with a burst of spring.
