Guest post 03: 'A Light Exists in Spring' by Tina of 'Komma Hem'

Hello, I´m Tina from 'Komma Hem' and I´m here to talk a little about the upcoming Spring.

Before I go on though, I just have to say that Charlotta is truly one of the most loving, supportive, genereous and honest people I´ve ever met in life and I feel so honored to be here as a guest editor for the second time! Thank You Sweet Friend!


It has been such a long and harsh winter here in Sweden this year and you can almost feel a longing in the air for Spring to start to happen.

Personally I love Spring, it´s like everything comes alive once again; It brings on a fresh start, new projects, spring cleaning, lighter clothing, brighter colors, fresh flowers, outdoor activities, daylight, hope, excitement, happiness, love, energy... Well, what is there not to love about Spring, I wonder!?


'A Light exists in Spring 
Not present on the Year 
At any other period — 
When March is scarcely here'


'A Color stands abroad 
On Solitary Fields 
That Science cannot overtake 
But Human Nature feels.'

'It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.'


'Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay—'

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

-Emily Dickinson

Sending Lots of Love and a wish you all a Happy New Season!
