Spring Leaves Photo by Angelique Stevens

Spring always make me take stock of where I’m at in life and where I want to be by year’s end.  I often get a different perspective of my life during these spring-time musings.  I took this photo last spring in Colorado Springs, Co shortly after updating my landscaping.  I was kneeling under this tree, felt the warmth of the sun, and looked up.  It made realize that as an adult I often forget about alternative perspectives.

I miss this tree, because after this day I often looked up into her branches while tending to the flowers and weeds below.  Through the summer she was full of those lacy elegant leaves–so thick that I could no longer see the sky.  By November,  she had shed all of her delicate leaves.  I would study her branches closely again in March for the first sign of a budding leaf.

“Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost–Poetry in Motion

“Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost. Images by me. This was originally part of a project for my poetry class, but since this poem fits the transition in my life and the lovely spring weather here in Germany, I thought that I would share it with you.  Hope you Enjoy!
