we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not interested in just being good

The first day of spring what a joyous occasion

a day that signifies that return of warm evenings

the start of new beginnings

a girl peaked outside to see new leaves

with much surprise the trees were bare

the girl walked outside to gaze at the scene

then she began to walk on a path hoping to see at least a vine

as she came up to the first tree something magical happened

so amazingly incredible that at first she couldn't even fathom

one of those tiny buds suddenly blossomed

she walked and walked without taking the smallest heed

to the plants opening up their warm hands as she slowly passed by

it wasn't until she looked over her shoulder

that her warm beautiful eyes lit up to see springs vibrant

white petals

green leaves

beautiful pink cherry blossoms filled the trees and graced the ground

she began to sprint down the winding path

with tree after tree bursting open into those many colorful tears

that the sight of her beauty forced them to shed

not a watch nor the weather brought along the spring

but the mere sight of this girl whose rare beauty is a myth

Pretty cool! I like the mental image you project. However, I can't seem to find any rythem in this poem? Maybe that's just me though.
