L. B. Mek




(after Lawrence Dunbar’s, song)



Shimmering rays of gaiety abounds

a chorus lark, of children’s delight


vibrant eager spirits, giddy

with vitamin D


aside, chirping - furtive

calling cards

by Nature serenading - majestic wings

decibels of solace - evergreen bright

toothy smiles - stretched, bravely wide


feathers of all colours


Winter weary, eyes

as rainless rainbow hues, entice

our aesthetic appreciation

for budding flora’s, daintily beauty

while lush verdure carpets


our carefree tapdancing toes

barefoot, beneath our umbrella trees


and kaleidoscopic aromas

bombard with their subtle, mesmeric

sublime of vitality’s, earthly essence

to remind us, we’re treating ourselves

to an iced – something

during our morning, commutes

to match that skkippitty - skip

of our pulses, fluttering romance

with that renewed sweetness

in each delectably sipped breath, of life.


While beloved Poesy, provides

those harmonious syllables

to promote celebration, of that Art

in living

as Lawrence Dunbar, proclaimed best

Spring! Spring! Spring!


Hail to thee

our most giving, cherished

emblem of Hope

as once more, delightedly

we Welcome ye

    • spilleronsheet

      Beautiful imagery with perfect lines
      The colours and emotions blended
      Could see the scenes of spring on display
      As if the seasons were playing in front of eyes
      As always a pleasure to go through a master piece

      • L. B. Mek

        I think if perfect existed, our lives would be so short
        still, humbly
        I will accept your overtly generous praise
        and thank you! for choosing to gift me
        with such encouraging words, dear Poet

        Springtime - natures effervescent refreshing of the world and boy does it get to our senses waking us up with vibrant colours, even green becomes G R E E N !!! the real verdant life of growth all around as blossoms decorate with their scented tease and again that buzzing of winged insects fills the air.

        Your words have gotten me all worked up and keen to go sample some of it.

        • L. B. Mek

          G R E E N !!!

            I'm often left without words after absorbing all of yours and that my friend is truly the most delightful feeling!
            Nothingness can be bliss and I kid you not and bird tweets away as I write this.

            Thank you for sharing my your spring be as pleasant as the soul you are!

            • L. B. Mek

              ahhh, I just made a mental note
              to start chasing through your archives again, brother
              as always, just glad to see your name
              on my screen and your reassuring words
              letting me know, you and your loved ones
              are doing ok..
              thank you for the high praise, kind Poet!
              I cherish our interactions
              like I do the serenade song of a Thrush bird
              or that wondrous, perfect Aurora
              of a Spring day..

            • Rocky Lagou

              Yes! What an enchanting and AROMATIC welcoming of Spring. I felt every word that your carefully placed into this marvel. Very well done!

                thank you, dear Poet
                just glad you enjoyed the read

              • rrodriguez

                I read your poem listening to the Vivaldi video and the words you penned about spring, sprung up to exult this marvelous time of rebirth. Excellent write!

                • L. B. Mek

                  forgive me, I'm a sucker for the obvious
                  Vivaldi's 'Spring'
                  is a must accompaniment for this attempted
                  celebration of all-things, delightful
                  we so briefly experience in these few months
                  we title, Spring..
                  thank you, for this supportive comment dear poet
                  glad you enjoyed the music
                  as well as my humble scribble

                • Neville

                  this whole poetic work is otherworldly and stands out as the work of art it most surely is ......................... Neville

                  • L. B. Mek

                    awesome! Hyung
                    cos 'otherworldly' is how Spring
                    makes me feel.. 🍻
                    despite all the chaos in the world
                    give me a bright, cool
                    morning to start my day with
                    and I'll promise to invest
                    all the hope left within me
                    in all my endeavours and chores
                    insuring, come what may
                    I'll greet that moon, reprieve
                    with little regret!
                    have a great Spring, my friend
                    even while we stare life's, failings
                    head-on, without blinking
                    we must find a way, to enjoy
                    our gifted, small blessings...

                  • bubblehead95

                    Spring in its most alluring and harmonious representation. It is undoubtedly gorgeous as always. Splendid!

                    • L. B. Mek

                      Nature is indeed, splendid!
                      I love your comment's infectiously enthusiastic tone
                      thank you, dear poet

                    • Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

                      • sorenbarrett

                        Such a well expressed poem about such a wonderful topic. I love spring and summer so much I spend summer in Brazil then return to the United States for summer again. I love your line "in each delectably sipped breath, of life." Wonderful.

                        • L. B. Mek

                          that sounds like a magical schedule
                          to squeeze every last ounce of goodness
                          from our two brightest seasons..
                          I wish you continued, harmony
                          with nature and all her wondrous beauty..
                          and thank you! for this wonderfully encouraging words
                          hope you have a wonderful Spring/Summer, dear Poet
