Meet the creative Cynthia P., a resident at Atria Del Sol and talented poet. Read her delightful poem titled, "Spring."

"Spring"

We see the signs of budding flowers and bees

New growth on old and dying trees

The summer went by too cool, too fast,

The fall was way too short to last.

With orange and yellow leaves so bright

It feet like Atria was just another “City of Light.”

Then, the winter came to Southern Cal.,

It echoed all our fears.

Too few days of cloudy, stormy nights,

The rains were only gentle waves of tears.

But wait…

These amazing sights that greet us now

Will soon and surely bring

Magnificent early signs of love

A sweet, pure, and gentle spring.

 – Cynthia P., Atria Del Sol resident
