As Sure As A Crocus

It’s not spring yet, but our crocuses have poked their way through the earth. We still have snow on the ground and they’ve decided it’s time to appear. Each year, from the time our girls have been small, we’ve always made a big deal about noticing the arrival of the crocuses. We see them come up outside our back window. That first sighting makes us so happy.

Why such excitement? Partly, the noticing of them has become a family tradition. Who will spot them first? Also, their arrival reminds us that winter is ending and spring is imminent.

One of the things that I treasure is the surety with which our purple crocuses burst forth. And even though we know they will come up every year, we are still filled with a sense of awe and hope when we see them.

The crocuses know that it’s time to grow and so they do. It’s their next step. I love the confidence with which they arrive. Wouldn’t it be great if all of us were as confident and sure of our next move?  Their decision has already been made. They know it’s time to wake up and feel the sunshine.

So as the snow melts, clothing gets lighter and greenery begins to surface, why not take your next step with boldness and sureness, just like the crocuses? It’s your time to bloom!

What a lovely message to the crocus! How pleased each flower would be if it could hear these warm and welcoming words.

The crocus is indeed a miracle and so is the author of this poetry.
