Re: Recreate

Autumn unto Spring

A season comes when life slows down
grass and trees turn dormant brown
waiting for sharp winter winds
and the veil of cold they bring


then life slumbers for a time
quietly, the world sublime
calling all to hush and rest
in den, in bush and in nest


until the day comes warm and bright
life emerging in the light
gentle rain to bring new growth
field and meadow, watering both



bursting flowers in vivid bloom
trilling birds in lovely plume
flowing streams and rivers meet
blowing breezes fresh and sweet


quickly now the world awakens
its winter slumber fully shaken
repose has passed, time to make
restore, renew and recreate


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
