A Spring Poem

HI All,

I belong to a beloved poetry group and we have a meeting tomorrow. The assignment was to write a poem on Spring.

Here is what I wrote:

Unhurried Change

Darkness

And cold

Envelop the earth

The silence is loud

The clouds…heavy as steel

Then, as slowly as a sloth

Opens first one eye and then another

The sun warms the air and the ground

The trees stretch their branches and the leaves

Unroll their green while waking from a long winter’s slumber

Cheery birds begin chatting with one another – first just a couple

But before long their friends and family all join in and their magical music

Tickles the air reaching up to the now pink clouds that float merrily along in a bluebird sky

Flowers’ fragrance bursts forth meandering past grateful noses while joining the titillating tunes’ journey

Eyes gasp in wonder at the emblazoned landscape embroidered in crayon colored hues of crimson, apricot, and gold

As gently as a butterfly alights on a flower

A new season blossoms

And grows
