Ode to Persephone and the Promise of Spring

Let's turn away from the grey of it all for a moment


albeit it's difficult, because its beauty is beyond the pale, and so soothing.
-Sublime-


- nonetheless -
I need a jolt of color
- and the promise of Spring -
Stark.
Grey.
Quiet.
-Coupled with all of this rain is really getting to me -

- so for today -
let's paint the canvas in swaths of happiness
*
- a tribute to Persephone -


- and the coming of Spring -









A big thanks, again, to Megan over at Beachbungalow8 for bringing James Merrell into my world! I can't get enough.

Happy weekend.
