Spring leaves

No matter how long I live in this valley, I will always getting a kick out if seeing the new leaves unfold each spring. The tightly-wound bud, the first hint of green which broadens into a broad line of freshness, and then the leaves, uncurling as if after a winter’s sleep, stretching, unfolding, reaching to the light.

5 to remember
independientemente – no matter
cuántó duro – how long
abririse – to unfold
la pista – the hint [clue]
una línea ancha – a broad line
