Signs of Spring
Mindful Optimism for Modern Times
SIGNS OF SPRING
Spring’s subtle flirtation
Begins with soft brush strokes
Upon the wintery landscape
Days stretch out their limbs
Waking from a slumber
And then, the other morning
Did I notice a shift in the light?
But to my mind this cannot yet be
I’ve been weathered for a time
Mistrusting my soul’s assurances
Sensing my hesitation
Chickadees and cardinals sing
So that I might trust
In the promise of summer
During daily commutes to work, author Luke Boyes became aware of new ways of engaging with the external world by means of exploring the space within. He began to write these ideas down, which organically led to a collection of poems exploring the inner self. He was inspired to write Signs of Spring: Mindful Optimism for Modern Times while transcribing those old notes, setting the intention to shine his own unique light by contributing positive energy into the world through these writings.
Luke lives in Ottawa, Ontario, and Signs of Spring: Mindful Optimism for Modern Times is his first published book. He also shares thoughts and writings on Instagram and Twitter, where you can connect with him @lukeboyeswrites.
