The April Days Speak

Goldfinches in a golden tree

The days

Ramble on

Speaking

Nothing

Diverse

Until a

Goldfinch

Visits

Bringing

Color

And a

Glimpse

Of joy

Suddenly

The days

Become

Alive

With hope

Speaking

New life

Will soon

Arrive

Coming Soon

Coming Soon sign

The sun has come forth to help us

Celebrate Spring’s soon return

She awaits now in the shadows

Behind time’s curtain

Sending forth samples

Of her season’s

Glimpse of new

Life and

Warmth

Mt. Hood

Mt. Hood--Oregon--Rictameter poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

Oregon’s highest mountain–Mt. Hood  is also one of the loftiest mountains in our nation.
I feel blessed that I am able to live so close to it, visit it, and photograph it.
