Ah Spring! _ A Poem A Day


Pansies stained of crimson

and purple

a sure sign of nature’s healing power

 

Sweet peas sing spring

a sun kissed lovely flower.

Daffodils spread

and smiles grow

when tulips stand tall

and the Ranunculus dazzles us

with it’s colors of pastel

 

clusters of forsythia brighten the afternoon

Peonies captivate the senses

along with the perfume of gardenias

 

What a celebration

to remind us

of the resurrection!

 

 

 

 

 

Today is May


May Day Postcard

I visited a memory today

from many moons ago

This very first day of May

We sang and danced
around the maypole
that must have been
five stories tall
and my dear friend E—
chuckled as I looked up
in awe of swirling, winding ribbons

of crimson, fuchsia, and baby blue
and became a little dizzy as I always do
when I go round and round and round

I can hear the sounds
of flutes and shakers
announcing spring is here

a memory visited me today
this very first day of May
and one thing’s true
I still have you
my friend
to share this glance into yesteryear
