Harbinger of Spring

Oh thank the good Lord, and the beautiful Ladies  that it is Spring again!  The crocus at my door  is nearly always on time, the perfect harbinger of this most encouraging of seasons.

Harbinger of SpringOn the square in downtown Greenville Illinois, there is a lovely little statue entitled “The Harbinger of Spring.” I have admired it for  years.  It was  created in the 1980’s by one of my former sculpture teachers, Ken Reyden.  Cast in bronze, this lovely lady has mellowed to a beautiful stage as only bronze can do.

She is aflame, and not corporeal, her body and stride a spirit in process. Close up, Harbinger of SpringHer face is not wholly formed, but is continually becoming; as full of possibility as the first days of spring!

Praise be!
