Walk with me a while, beneath the creamy blossom trees, and I’ll tell you a tale or two about Spring and her vibrant magic. She stretches her arms wide, and pushes the cold and the darkness out to the edges of the world. In the space she creates, light and warmth pour in, and life pulses through in waves of green leaves and frothy flowers.
Each flower, each leaf, of the millions born each day, is a child of the light flowing like a cresting wave across the dark earth. Seeming to defy the laws of physics, spring summons their growth from the utter stillness of winter. The momentum is unstoppable and the energy of growth seems endless, as blossom after blossom bursts overhead. Imagine the power which must rest within each brown branch, hidden and resting through the dark months of winter.
It seems impossible that all this creamy foaming beauty can unfold from within the dark hard limbs of trees. This breaking edge of spring is a liminal space, a threshold between seasons, where the light and the dark create new patterns and shapes. Insects are attracted to the new growth, and in turn they attract birds who sing with wild abandon late into the night. Dreams, hopes and wishes rest on these fleeting petals, so let them work their magic. Let your mind fill with all of the stories you would like to unfold into your life, as you walk beneath the drifting blossoms. In the spring, beneath the cherry trees, everything is possible, and dreams can be birthed.
Form, birth and release your dreams into the soft warm breeze of spring. Who knows which ones will fruit, but all of them are beautiful as they swirl in the air in dancing petal clouds. Let springs enchantment flow through your bones releasing ancient long held dreams into the world. There can never be enough blossom in the world, or so my Granny used to say.
