Buds

Buds burst open,
squeezed through twig, branch, and bark.
Straining toward a lush green future.
Seeking the light and warmth of spring.

I took this photo one morning last week in my backyard. The sun came out strong after a soaking mix of rain and sleet. Everything was shimmering with light. The conditions were perfect to satisfy Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bokeh, and the resulting photo works for The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Future, as well. Buds and new growth always speak to me of a promising future.

Thank you Jennifer N. and Jen H. for the challenges!
