It took me by surprise,
What I saw.
There, in front of me,
One of the most breathtaking sights
I have ever truly seen.
Not expected, I took a second glance -
It had not gone away.
A blink, as well, would not
Prove that it was simply the heat
Getting to me.
I looked all around me,
Trees become greener,
The birds singing,
The flowers blooming
But the one thing that let me know
The truth was
Walking towards me in colors of
White and green.
At that point, I realized
That cold or hot,
Rain or shine,
The seasons had once again changed.
At that point
You epitomized the beauty of the season.
At that point,
I knew that it was finally spring.

I have no commentary on this at the moment. There will be another post to explain Poetry Blogging in a moment. That is all.
