Spring Garden Flowers

Oh! how I love my spring garden flowers,
they brighten my world and make me smile,
colors are brilliant from April showers,
and little pansy faces beguile.

Johnny-jump-ups will always surprise me,
they are so prolific and abundant,
they appear where not expected to be,
in my garden, there must be a hundred.

Bright yellow daffodils bring so much cheer,
like sunshine even when hiding in shade,
bulbs give me more beautiful blooms each year,
Oh! but all too soon they begin to fade.

The Alida Dwarf Iris is lovely in shades of blue,
someday I will create a blue garden,
with all flowers of beautiful blue hues,
and play for them music on my ardin.

Along the meandering border,
pinks and other fragrant dianthus
seem to be saying in flowing order,
walk this way, follow our scents, enjoy us.

Many lovely flowers greet me each day,
I will make many little baskets gay,
for kids to leave on doorsteps on May Day,
they will have fun, ring the bell, run away.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Phyllis, this poem not only reminds me of the beauty of spring but brings such hopeful energy with its rhythm. Beautiful and brilliant. Today I am moving out into the yards to start Spring yard work and I am ready for the warmer weather. Your friend, Jamie.

    Such lovely imagery of flowers. Will come May and I’ll be missing the lilacs that grew in my garden.

      Thank you, Kurt. I wish you all the best that Spring has to offer. Remember, we are friends here and gather with love and support. Peace and healing to you, dear friend. We had snow up till about four days ago, now it has been in the low 70s, sunny, and gentle breezes with flowers poppin’ up all over the yard.

    Such lovely verse with great imagery of many spring flowers bursting forth in bloom. Enjoyed this Phyliis and it brought back memories of my garden in Latvia.
