Spring- Season of new beginnings.

Spring is the season of new beginnings. Soon the earth will come to life with fresh bud blooms, animals awakening from long hibernation and sun shining bright. Farmers and gardeners will plant their seeds and temperatures will slowly rise.

The timing of these changes varies depending upon location. Spring is generally considered the period between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Defined by the angle of Earth’s tilt toward the sun, astronomical spring relies on equinoxes and solstices to define it.

Spring or springtime as many call is three weeks away. Join us in the Spring 2021 countdown with this compassionate poem ‘The Last Laugh’ by our guest columnist Sugandh Swan.

The Last Laugh

By Sugandh Swani

Did you leave something behind?
I saw you turn your head there,
Something that is left undone,
You feel a missing piece somewhere?!

The sun is closing the doors for you,
And yet you swoosh in making your way,
Through the windows back to our world,
A bit longer I feel, you want to stay.

Or is it your cold shadow we feel?
On our backs when the dewy dusk dawns,
And you have found your bed already?
To find rest and sleep for your weary yawns.

For you have worked really hard,
To blanket the world in gloom,
But now it’s time for the grey days to go,
And for Spring to make some room.

For the fresh flowers and crisp greens,
And the birds to colour the skies blue,
So, enjoy your last laugh O Winter,
We are ready to bid farewell to you.

  1. Our Earth has warmed and cooled by itself for millions of years, the geologic record proves this. The GW thing is all about controlling populations, I don’t buy it.
