“Spring and Memories” from “Remembering Eternity”

“The potent, muskiness of the wisteria smelled like the perfume of a woman he could no longer have. The lighter, lily-of-the-valley fragrance of the forsythia recalled innocence long lost. Sturdy, dimpled, violaceous blooms of magnolia reminded him of the youthful exuberance of Mayfield Street and the languor of the Deep South, all of which states were out of his reach. Eager, nest-building, Black-throated Blue Warblers, carrying small twigs in their beaks, rushed back to their chosen limbs with a purposefulness Skylar no longer possessed. Spring revealed the world at work, all its life forms energetic and excited about growth and the future. Yet Skylar faced the spring with lassitude and a dull, foreboding throb of fear.”
