A Plea to Springs Finery

A Plea to Springs Finery
A Plea to Springs Finery

Blue sky finery…

An avalanche of blossoms
burst with glee upon the streets,
as if thrown atop those reaching claws,
of winter’s dark lament,
and sunlight shy of winter’s night,
tries to validate a smile of pinks and whites,
so distinct against the still brooding sky.

One day it took to transform
those twiggy streets so dim,
of green moss shadows and dark wet skin,
to adorn with such delicate blooms,
where winter ends and spring resumes,
yet cold it still remains,
and sun still cautious in a distant refrain.

Bring me sun, dressed in all its spring finery,
and let that chill spill into fallen night,
to leave my days in shear delight,
as new growth gathers
and life assumes this season fair,
if only the sun did care and take away
this somber mood.

Half there, in stalled stance,
my spring unsung in full romance,
please, oh please fall you grasping winter,
and let my heart soar,
embraced of warmth restored,
all that chilled and in spite abhorred,
a persistent and peevish winter.

    You masterfully trace the departure of one season into another with your colorful display of words my friend. Eloquently expressed as always, may the sun brighten your days, may the chill be lifted and the Spring heat up your soul and let you feel it’s radiance of delight upon it. Cheers

    Cheers Vincent, and thankfully Spring is creeping into being after a very bleak and cold winter. I’ve missed the warmth. Take care my friend.
