As winter wanes to a silent close, spring answers with a jubilee. Petals parade, green marches over all, and a host of birds hearken the season of renewal. The cycles shift. The planet absorbs the cold rot and decay of prior seasons, re-circulated like ancient wisdom passed on by mutes.
Darkness gives way to light. And a time of renewal sets landscapes and souls afire.
