open invitation no. 51: spring

Be inspired by spring.

I think words are fun when they can mean different things. Check out all of the definitions for spring.

  1. Move or jump suddenly or rapidly upward or forward.
  2. Originate or arise from.
  3. The season after winter and before summer, in which vegetation begins to appear, in the northern hemisphere from March to May and in the southern hemisphere from September to November.
  4. A resilient device, typically a helical metal coil, that can be pressed or pulled but returns to its former shape when released, used chiefly to exert constant tension or absorb movement.

[Definition from a Google search.]

The invitation today is to be inspired by “spring.” If you need more ideas, the Merriam-Webster definition is even more in depth, including to pay, as in “I’ll spring for drinks,” and many others.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

  1. Fran – you made me cry! So lovely – one tiny blue egg! Behold, I am making all things new (Revelation 21:4-5, ESV).

    My post mirrors yours – I was thrilled watching kids compose spring poetry – and I wrote one too!

    HAPPY EASTER & PASSOVER to all who celebrate!

  2. Love the plethora of ideas connected to spring. My post can be thought of as being connected to spring now that I read all those ideas and have on my creative thinking hat, lol. But even if you can’t see the connection I hope you enjoy it.
