Spring Is Here

Spring is here gentle and easy.
The mountain is ready for color.
Red buds dot the landscape.
Showing their faces first.
Dogwoods soon follow.
White splashes here and there.
Spring green of baby leaves.
Sprinkled across the mountain.
Quiet moss turn emerald green.
Spread across the forest floor.
Bright green ferns waving in the wind.
A canopy for the colorful wildflowers.
Daisies make their grand entrance.
Standing tall, strong and proud.
Butterflies dancing in the sun.
Ready for the sweet nectar below.
Morning dew covers the mountain.
Nature's diamonds from the sun.
Mountain in layers of vibrant colors.
Impressionist artist dream come true.
