Glad Tidings of Nymble

Nymble didn’t stand so much as gently flit above the waving grass, the first of the season’s signs of change. Leaning back as much as her grass and sunlight mote companions; she drank the deep, fresh air.

“Spring,” she whispered. She breathed.

A smile tickled her dimples. It pushed at her mouth-corners. As she looked out and over the gathered folk and fae, the smile spread to every feature of her pointed face. She grinned and opened her arms to hold the warm sun from toe to wing tip.

Atop the eminent rise, she addressed the expectant crowd. “SPRING!”

  1. Hi Chelsea, beautiful response to the prompt. I’m ready and waiting for Nymble to arrive here, and I’m listening carefully for her whisper. “Spring!” Have a great week ahead!

      1. I can’t really complain, today was over 80 degrees, although rain is in the forecast for Wednesday/Thursday. I’m truly ready for full on spring. Wishing you well as Old Man Winter creeps off and Nymble ushers in spring. 🙂

  2. Spring, renewal, a new beginning. I like the name Nymble. Conjures up so many images, always be ready, weaving, dodging,thinking ahead…….and so biblical with glad tiding of great joy. You captured the spirit Chelsea.
