The time has come

May’s skirts rustle as she tiptoes

Through the dancing tulips 

Sowing seeds of florescence

Carpeting the world with flowers

Spring Senses

Spring wreath with flowers, bird and butterflies

Waking to the sound

Of a dove’s soft cooing,

My sleepy eyes delight

At sunshine, and the morning

Sounds of baby birds.

Taste awakening anew,

I touch life boldly

Smelling it’s fragrant winds that

Promise new life again.

Marching

Basking in the warmth of her sunshine

I walked awhile with March

Dreaming of hot summer days

Until she led me through a glen

Where winds blew cold

Thru shaded trees

Where Winter

Hid Spring’s

Smile

Nonet

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens

The Promise Of Spring

Crocus flower

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Winter shall soon be done

Oh worry not weary one

Spring’s life has begun

And winter must succum

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Triolet

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22
