SNOWDROPS

It was a snowy winter in Marshwood, Dorset and we weren’t able to go to school for a couple of days because the school bus couldn’t manage those icy roads.

Walking up the hill from ‘Thimble cottage’ where we lived, I looked out at the stunning scenery where fields and hills were silently covered in a thick white blanket. I was filled with a sense of peace and revitalization, all at the same time. Even Pilsdon hill – a treasure trove for busy archeologists, was looking particularly splendid and untouched that morning.

I noticed a cluster of soft white snowdrops peeping though the deep, frozen layer of hedgy bank by the roadside. In awe of those courageous little blossoms, I stopped, stared, and gently touched the delicate petals; in that moment of instant responsiveness I knew that fresh life would always reach out to touch our human heart. These small and fragile flowers have the inherent strength to herald the comforting whisper of springtime; this must have given numerous individuals over eons of time, a small yet unmistakable window of optimism.

I do believe that nature offers mankind, countless symbols of hope in an often-testing world.

This is a short narrative from my book about childhood memories
