from the ground up

Out of the dark.


Minute by minute, the days are getting longer.

The windows no longer darkened at dinnertime.  We notice more lingering sunsets.  We see the sun upon awakening.

There is more time out in the sunshine, soaking it in.

And we aren’t the only ones noticing the suns rays.

Out of the dark (basement).

Just a dry, papery bulb.

Then, a touch of green.  And many exclamations from each of us watching.

Right before our eyes,

up, up, up it grows,

reaching for the light, like us.

***Started from a seed, given to me by my Grandma.  She had numerous amaryllis in her dining room window, one of which sent out seeds.  We have yet to see a bloom from this young amaryllis, but we are hopeful that this will be the year.***
