A Bud of Hope for the New Year

DSC_0801 (2)

At the base of each drying leaf

Is a bud full of life and potential

Waiting patiently for summer’s heat

Or winter’s cold to pass

Knowing Spring will bring renewal

*****

Remember…

Behind all that crushes you

Makes you feel devastated

Hopeless and distraught

Lies a bud of strength and potential

The creator’s promised hope

Waiting for you to recognize

That your spring has arrived

Once more

Carol Anne commented on this post from my archives, and I thought it would be a great one as we look forward to the new year!

I took the photos this morning in my yard.
