Another Spring



Another Spring




Warm spring followed the cold of winter nights
and dawn arrived with the light of amber sun
Came calmness for winds that blew to mighty gales
each valley traversed, holding chilling wails to bay


Now stifled in hollows, speaking whispers to pines


calmed breath of air caresses the timber boughs
To river’s shores swell wakes of splashing waves
waters surge from beneath winter’s last icy caps

Streams overflow shallows into wakening fields


new life begins, absent in assisted till or harvest
Seedlings to buds, strewn by host of year before
gives tinge to passing season’s gray pastel scapes


Hues sprinkled to spawning from earthen canvass


don colors from each arch that follows the rains
Blossoms and grasses painted in splendored delight
announce a stay to shudders hidden in frigid wisps


In distance and near, voices sing for the rise


day in beginning greeted by swoopers of flight
nestled to perch, their sights forward to sky
with welcome in song, the morning is cheered


Sprouting shade of a tree gives beckon to clouds


from heaven seep as your shadows gather on ground
Pour life into furrows that chase flowing streams
long winter take bow cede birth to ensuing hours


Warm days that follow cold of winter nights


arrives with dawning of new season’s amber sun
A calmness on winds with a warmth for the soul
through valleys it brings signs of spring in the air

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

More Than A Moment

I floated through this poem - recently saw the shadow of clouds on the lake and was awed as I was by this tribute to time and nature and memorable moments ~Allets~
