The afternoon sun gently kisses the delicate flowers on the forest edge. The occasional breeze is strong enough to pick up a few leaves from the first floor and make them dance in the air.
The wind brings a message of change in the air. Soon the cycle of warm and cool will awaken the rest of the sleeping forest.
The broken remanents of the gray shell that hid the cobalt blue eternity above are driven past by the same breezes that shake the boughs full of bloom.

At the time I took the photos it was about 70 degrees Fahrenheit but as I write tonight’s post it’s expected to be below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The oscillation of climate in the Spring causes the ground to “throw” one more cycle before the sun finally wins out. This churning of the soil helps the last few seeds that fell a few weeks ago to become situated in the ground and prepare to germinate.

The sacred dance continues on as I zero my lens on the clusters of small blooms. The shadows of the clouds fall on the flowers only for a moment before the wind moves them and they appear to shake the darkness off.

Eventually the light comes chases the shadows back into the ether.
The gray shell of rain clouds dissipates and the birds that sheltered deep in the forest began to sing as they come out and sit next to flowers.
I take one last look at the beauty of my mountains and drop all the windows of the big blue truck to let the air in before taking my foot off the brakes and idling to my next destination.
