New Beginnings

From our April 2012 issue

By Gladi McMurtry – Saskatoon, Sask.

Spring is around the corner.
I look out the windows at my garden
with the left over look of last year.

I see old dead brown plant stalks
Which looked wonderful peeking through the snow
But they all have seen much better days.

Some green shoots are poking through
the earth, wanting to experience life
and again give colour to my yard.

Life can be also like that
with each season giving us a chance too
to make changes and become fruitful.

That is the joy of seasons
each one can make a real difference
and put life in a new perspective.
