A Hint of Good Things to Come

Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you. ~Edward Payson Rod

Though the air remains cold, and the earthy remains icy, the days slowly are stretching longer, and the promise of spring grows stronger. For those of you in the throes of winter's desolation, I bring you a hint of the good things to come: tiny stems unravelling from the frozen earth, exploding into bursts of colour; breezes that, rather than chafe and snatch your breath away, warm and soothe, and bring floating along a summer's worth of winged beings; frozen crevices that with a soft giggle, once again turn into happily babbling steams.

All of these pieces and more can be found in my etsy shop. The link is on the right hand side.
