Spring photos for The Daily Post challenge “Victory”

For the Victory challenge at The Daily Post:  spring photos, with two short poems.  We keep spring in our hearts during the beauty of winter.

For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing
of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle
is heard in our land . . .

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12 (KJV)

all winter
flowers rested
in the earth
beauty begins
in the heart

*

birds sing
outside the window
as we join with many
who pray the Psalms
this Mystery
