Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring!

Tentative, I poke my head out of my cave,

hoping with familiar desperation

to feel the warm caress of sunshine on my cheek.

The light hurts my eyes

after months of brutal hibernation.

But as I turn my face toward the sky

to greet the Spring,

I know that my soul will be healed.
