Spring ephemerals never cease to warm my heart with their delicate perseverance, their faith in the light up above the snow that’s barely melted. They remind me of my own spirit’s resilience– that despite those moments when my petals feel super thin and fragile, I’m actually stronger than I think… I’m actually built to endure.
As their name suggests, these flowers don’t last long. But they bring joy, and promise of an abundance of life to follow. They serve such a beautiful purpose, early nourishment for pollinators and insects who are also newly emerging. They are the pioneers of each new year’s abundant life– new cycles beginning.
A joy to see the way you grow
the way you grow
Your spirit rising
Pushing up through the snow
Hope you bring in your fragile beauty
The way you grow, the way you grow
Sing the song of Life to Come
pushing up through the snow
