Spring Spirited

Sunbeams gaze through the window Soon to come, and soon again to fill Hearts of hope for another new beginning Translucent Aloe filled leaves of green Send fluorescent hues bouncing echoes  Around the room, speaking to spirit Outside, taking footsteps into nature I remember lime colored greens of spring Warm filled days splayed with purpose    Air sweet sky of perfumed growing things  Pleasing spaces filling vases with flowers Tummy's rich with garden’s foodstuff Common rocks lie stuffed cheery with sun  Hear the baby bird's song all day long Cats and dogs sprawl about the grass Kids romp with pathways yet to cross Seen are the dreams, of life's loves to come  Rebirth's look has tomorrow’s eyes                                          Indicative signs of great possibility

So beautifully penned and so deserving of the months list of favorites. The warmth generated from your words along with the colors presented from your pen bring forth all that our heart desires at this time of the year...a time of new beginning, the world returning to life, babies being welcomed into families, the aroma that indeed fills the air that surrounds love the sound of the morning birds as thy sing such a sweet melody in the early light to God above......the memories that fill your vases, that warm your sun filled days and bring hope for a brighter tomorrow. Indeed a very special presentation....thank you and God Bless, Claire the flu turned into pneumonia and I am still in yah girl....

Making a poem of Spring eupehmism to the hopes for all mankind blossoming is just about as grand as it gets. "Warm filled days splayed with purpose" is my favorite line, forgiving the rather rustic reference, "Tummy's rich with garden's foodstuff". Capturing the image of the first uncut crop of grass, "Kids romp with pathways yet to cross" is exceptional not just in its mental picture but in its tie-in with the larger euphemism. As you improve, the first mark of improvement is shown in the crafting of the expression, "Seen are the dreams" where you utilize inversion skillfully. Mature and accomplished poem. JCH

Hi Dellena, A fine welcome to the much awaited 'spring'. My favorite lines - 'Translucent Aloe filled leaves of green Send fluorescent hues bouncing echoes, Around the room, speaking to spirit. It is evident that you rejoice in Nature. Duane.
