COMING.


COMING.
Coming spring drips and
all growth becomes riddled with
desire for sun's warmth,
ridden with need for having more.
Freshly risen, shy green
gets liquid-addiction, an invisible
draw makes sward
swoon for regular fixes of water.


The four seasons born
From Earth’s rotating axis gears
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall
The north and south hemispheres
After a long cold Winter
I crave the warmth of Spring
The ground being soft again
And colorful birds that sing


Spring - the year's imp
Delights in peeking from the ground
And shyly showing its new garments
Their purples and yellow and pinks


The dry Colorado mountainsides
yearning for God's relief
Shouts to the heavens
go unheard in the stillness
Wildfires lurk in the solemn pines
Nature will reveal her wrath


SPRING...I’m pleased to inform you that WINTER has been evicted. I’m ready to welcome you in. Come as soon as you can. Don’t forget to bring along the birds, the butterflies, and flowers galore. Just a few of my favorite things.

    Five stanzas are lovely. My bit is not. It's been an extremely dry winter here and I have seen the effects repeatedly. There have been wildfires already. This coming Spring is very foreboding to me. Sorry for ruining the mood.

    I'd been away for a while before i saw your kind invitation which sadly i missed and its over. I'm sorry, i would have liked to have contributed. To that end i did write a piece as below:-

    and stepping out there is life now
    new life is abundant
    luscious greens comfort my eyes
    a velvet softness once more
    covers land and tree
    birds sing in my head
    and my blood pulses
    a new energy into my being
    i am alive and it is spring again
    such joy, my arms are open to you
    and whatever comes my way
    i will share with you
    and cherish the fruit
    the juice of life, lust and love

      A beautifully expressed appreciation of the joys Spring can bring to those who see her abundance - thank you dear friend for your contribution.
