Our days are getting longer and while we are definitely still in the midst of winter plants are gearing up for growth.
Flora growing close to the forest floor are usually the first to sprout.
They need to take advantage of the sunlight before the canopy overhead begins to rob them of light.
Not many plants are closer to the ground than is moss.
Rays of green spread out in soft mounds;
each tiny shoot pointing skyward.
Inspiring me to do the same.
I turn my face skyward,
raise my arms toward the light
and anxiously wait for spring.
