Arrival – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

"Happiness held is the seed. Happiness shared is the flower."
-John Harrigan

what sweet relief to witness
the majesty of bloom on blue
background bright with multiple

openings of pinks possible 
a sigh of cold escapes me, finally
evidence of arrival in the air

I smell aliveness and
again, I have survived winter
