Flowers Musing on Rain

Over attentive lover

Prince of Spring and life it brings

Your plenitude far from teasing us

To put on garments just to please

Is causing us to glance wistfully

At our dancing slippers of colorful silk

In the closet still and until

The sometimes overwhelming Sun

Returns to chase you back a while

All's fair in love and war

Where less is sometimes more

Over ardent Rain

Stay back and let the yellow might

Coax us up into the light

Gentle up sweet Rain

And let us dress in colors once again

    Could feel the frustration of those flowers appealing - - such an inventive write Lorna and a delight to read . Hope soon the rain will bend an ear and cease........ at least for the blooms to wear a smile again.

      What a wonderful song, its been great here in Britain. Sun has been shining for weeks, I just gave it a like wink. Should be with in the next 3/6 working days.

    • Suresh

      The flowers are drenched
      They have soaked up their fill
      Now it's time for the sun to shine
      So the other creatures can now dine

      A very pleasant read indeed

        Thank you Suresh - always appreciated..

      • dusk arising

        You look to the sky and all you see is grey
        Whats Trump doing to the weather over US of A
        He thinks global warming is a kinda a myth
        False news he says, is he taking the piss?
        Your grandkids amd mine will reap the wirlwind
        To neglect it now is a mortal sin

        • Lorna

          Oh please Dusk....... we're truly f.....k'd with Trump. I am so ashamed...........

          A fine write Lorna.

          Its a mild Winter we are having this Spring. If any hope remains, or if you need a bit of weather news from the bright side, birds were flooding our tree today, cardinals, orioles, chickadees, etc.
          Let the flowers scream for Sun, maybe Nature will listen. Your poem makes their case elegantly Clever to have given them a voice. Great imagery. Springtime emotions from our flowery friends. terrific write. - Phil A.

            It's pretty up in Salem...........

          • Michael Edwards

            Rain brings life
            life brings hope
            Hope brings colour

            The weather has been hot and sunny here in middle England for some time now and is set to continue. Just to make you jealous !!


            • Lorna

              I'm glad for you - I really am! So you get get out and paint M. van Gogh.........

              • Lorna

                That was supposed to be so you can get out and paint....... but you knew that.

              • Goldfinch60

                Very good write Lorna, I do hope that you will be able to dress in colours very soon.

                • Lorna

                  I woke up to a sunny day Andy! You did it!
