In 2022, I visited Cherokee Park more than ever since living in Louisville. Whether walking or running, I quietly observed how things in the park slowly changed overtime. Vibrant greens turned to deep yellows and reds. Bright, beautiful sunsets became dark, empty evenings. The smells of fresh-cut grass came to a halt. The park was preparing for winter, and all I could think about were the seasons before. All I could hope for was the season that was to come, blossoming with fresh life. Longing for Spring represents a desire in my heart and soul for life to always be beautiful. For days to be bright and full of wonder and excitement. For hardships to be no more. I don’t know what heaven will be like, but I imagine it will be something like Springtime in Cherokee Park.
