Egg of Spring

This poem was inspired by the symbols of spring and the Vernal Equinox and the celebration of Easter and Ostara. “Vernal” is derived from the Latin word for “bloom.” So spring can be encapsulated in the word bloom. Is blooming the beginning, a rebirth, or part of the larger cycle, the universe? In the chicken and the egg cycle, egg is the seed and the chick is the bloom. Don’t forget to bloom this spring.

One more thing. Remember death is also a bloom, a new form. The egg feeds the fox to nurse her kits.

Egg of Spring
Egg of Spring

Indeed incredible
and edible
life and death
a symbol of the whole universe
elliptical, cyclical, never ending
spark, creation, life, growth, birth
matter remade again and again
in the originator’s likeness
yet never exactly replicated.

The egg of spring
fertile, soil, awaken
morphos into your next form
cracking the shell
over wet wings
stretch and fluff
and peep sweet loving
melodic peeps
rejoicing in the yellow light
moving your warm bones
turning your fancy to love.

  1. Thanks to Linda for pointing out my typo. I had “editable” instead of “edible.” Laughing, that sure changed the meaning. Thank you Linda.
