Purple Wisteria on a white picket fence

Let it not be said

Winter’s breath impaired us

Pickets wear purple


#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 27–Prompt: You can pick a line you like from one of Shakespeare’s sonnets and use it as the genesis for a new poem. 

(I chose Sonnet 06 “Then let not winter’s ragged hand deface” as my inspiration)

In the Aftermath Of Winter

Rose bud

Searching for sunshine

A tiny bud pushes forth

Roses rise again


#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 21–Off Prompt

I am glad to see my roses springing up and back to life after the hard winter we had. I lost a few plants to the cold weather but my roses all survived and are looking healthy and growing.
