A daintily, confession

here, budding petals

hope fuelled syllables, as my

heart’s, pulsing brooklets

    A beautiful tribute to growing buds dear friend. and such a thrilling bouquet of Spring-like imagery to brighten my day - -at this moment pink graces my garden and heart too.

    • L. B. Mek

      that's so beautifully worded, 'pink, graces'
      I wish you all the Pink in the world, dear Fay
      hope you have a peaceful, Spring and Summer..
      thank you!

      I must be the only guy who gets excited when the grass seed comes through. Now I need a lawnmower.

      • L. B. Mek

        if DIY tool shopping was an endurance sport
        I would have an Olympic medal or two, by now..
        let's go get dem weeds! lol
        thank you, dear Poet

      • Rozina

        Another lovely spring tribute. I've been enjoying several spring poems today so even though there is no spring here I am enjoying the imagery.

        • L. B. Mek

          may I ask, why there is no Spring?
          glad you enjoyed the read, dear poet
          thank you!

            I live in the tropics, Malaysia. There are no 4 seasons here; hot, humid, rainy, hot......

            A beautiful senryu, celebrating the nature’s beautiful attire…great one dear Mek….

            • L. B. Mek

              thank you, dear Poet
              I thought if I shared any more
              lengthy scribbles
              I might be barred from MPS..

              • spilleronsheet

                No, I don’t think so….your a pro…its a pleasure to read your poetry….and a senryu/haiku is so difficult to compose…it’s commendable that you can master both long and short…

              • Christina8

                A hopeful write here and it's a beauty with spring imagery to boot! Thanks Mek for sharing!

                • L. B. Mek

                  glad you enjoyed the read, dear poet
                  thank you!

                  Dear Mek, Nice one. But I feel a Haiku or Senryu limits the poets expression, In special for a person like you. Feels incomplete and want to read more of it..

                  " Your expressions are your heart beats.,
                  Which we really savor like a sweetmeats !! 🙂

                  • L. B. Mek

                    an insightful, point of view
                    but may I ask
                    imagine if you could ink every expression
                    of every heart beat, where will it end...?
                    now, try to conceptualise
                    you have the power to condense and distil
                    a billion heartbeats, worth of emoted expression
                    in just 17 syllables?
                    How much more of your expressions
                    will you able to share..
                    it would be like sweetmeats
                    not making you gain weight or diabetes...!
                    be open minded, dear Poet
                    length doesn't equate to worth, in Poetry
                    but then again, like you
                    I do like it when there's more meat
                    on a Poem, for me to sink my
                    opinionated, teeth - in..
                    thank you! for your wonderfully brave comment
                    stay bold!

                    • Vamsi Sudha

                      Thanks Mek, for taking time to write out !! This was so hilarious..
                      "it would be like sweetmeats
                      not making you gain weight or diabetes...!"..

                      Yes, I am very open minded about poetry and would surely try to take Haiku as a diabetic pill...hahahaha
                      Liked the way you presented your reply....poetry can't escape you ....:)

                      If I could write only one of these ever again, it would be to write this one, but before thee, brother Mek .. top most marks subsequently assigned .. N

                        ah Hyung, your gracious score markings
                        nourish, my poetic heart..
                        I will strive for your coat tails, you
                        just keep leading me to poetry's, clouds...
                        thank you!

                        That it does each time I drag myself out the door in the morning, to receive what you describe beyond my mind....

                        Short and sweet too!
                        Fantastic as ever

                        • L. B. Mek

                          'to receive what you describe beyond my mind'..
                          your wording is so succinctly, elegant
                          as-ever, simply beautiful to read

                        • Rocky Lagou

                          Yes, that fountain that just bursts from the heart. Wonderful!

                          • L. B. Mek

                            right?! it always felt like that to me..
                            thank you! dear poet

                              The "hope" of Spring expressed nicely in this short poem. From "budding petals" to "pulsing brooklets" picturesque words straight from the heart. Good one. - Phil A.

                              • L. B. Mek

                                thank you! dear poet
                                and yes, I agree
                                'picturesque' imagery, is my go-to
                                when voicing those softer notes
                                of emotion anchored, subjects

                                Fine written words Mek
                                Bringing joy to all of us
                                In just those three lines.

                                  endlessly hope fuelling, poetry
