Spring Self Rising

Spring Self Rising

By Laura E. Garrard

Spring Self Rising


Spring approaches bringing the slight scent of sage

Warmer winds alleviate the chill of winter’s storms

I approach the woman of years ago

With new beginnings on her horizon

Her monthly goals achieved and then some

Creativity born of yoga practice and re-education

Bodily healing and bodily challenge of new physicality

Her breath interprets things blooming within

Not of pain but of passion

Her own, not his nor theirs

She was discovering herself anew

And smelled flowers of birth

The sweetness of kindness toward herself

Secure not

Spring breezes and counterparts to reason

She asked herself through philosophy, books and questions

Then stood summer, a completion of change

Unfolding even more boldly than she presumed
