REFLECTIONS OF SPRING

Sweetly chilled raindrops,
tapping gently
against my cheek.
Streams of life,
gracefully descending from the heavens.

I am reminded of Spring.

Where the many tulips,
and daisies grow wildly,
under the palest blue sky.

A pair of young robins,
dancing carelessly,
entwined in the spirit
of the calming breeze.

A bond of love,
inscribed in their peaceful
togetherness.

One of many
insignificant moments,
measured by nought
but a few blinks of the eye.
Where eternity could play out
in a single heartbeat.

Even now,
as the autumn skies
are kindly soaking me,
raindrop after raindrop-

           -my heart belongs to Spring.


18-year-old Robert John Helms is a student at Preston College.
