Faint fluttering flicker

Among springtime’s treasures

Seeking sustenance

Among garden beauties

Aroused from winter’s sleep

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.

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
