The subdued petal,
Its silken flesh blessed by dew,
Dances and sways in the spring sun’s rays,
Bending its delicate skirts in chiffon grace.
No more the deep darkness of winter’s embrace,
Life re-born, renewed a pace.
A thousand wishes coming true,
New hope, new possibilities grow.
Glistening shards of verdant green,
Among white dappled drops of snow,
Each frowning head bobbing in the warming glow,
Of sunnier days to come.
The crocus bursts with vivid hue,
Amidst the dull greys of winter blue,
The ducks arrive in feathered clans,
And bring my smile, happiness found.
Spring leaps…and I follow.

Nice…love the last line 🙂
Thank you Will, I do find it so refreshing, a lifting of the spirits, to see new life pushing up through the earth. It just lets me know that kinder months are on the way. 🙂
Beautiful, I am so looking forward to Spring 🙂
Thank you, Harliqueen, me too! I think everyone is waiting with baited breath for kinder, sunnier days. The winter has been tough on a lot of people, but seeing new life bursting up through the ground, just fills me with hope and joy! 😀 x
Images and words enhance each other, and … sunnier days to come … yes, yes, yes …. ☼
😀 Thank you sweetie…just so thrilled when I saw the crocus and narcissi pushing their little heads up. It really does feel like a lifting of the spirits! 😀 xx
This is beautiful, Sophie. I can’t wait to see things like this in my own backyard. 🙂
Oh thank you sweetie! Ugh, it’s just so so lovely to put this damn winter behind us, it’s been a tough one, but Spring promises sunnier times indeed. Hope Spring blossoms for you soon honey. 😀
Thanks. Unfortunately, I think we’re due for some more snow this week. I am so over this winter – I can’t wait for spring! 🙂
Oh crap, sorry honey, that sucks. I know the USA has been utterly battered this winter with terrible blizzards and record low temperatures, it’s even been on the news over here. We all feel for you guys, really hope the weather breaks soon and gives you some much needed sunny relief blossoming flowers! Sending love n’ hugs across the waves! 😀 xx
