Spring is Sprung

Finally. Spring is here, a month late. I’m going to be in the garden as much as possible for the next week. Weeds are running rampant and I want to get the veggie garden in. So much to do, but still time to write, such fun …


SPRING IS SPRUNG                                                 

blossoms burst rooftops
with an exuberance of colour

sky burns orange yellow
behind a rise of eagles

lilac tosses white perfume
over rainbows of polyanthus

and I transplant seasons
with a swallow’s swoop

    I can see Spring in your poem better than outdoors right now on the Malahat; such great use of words and enthusiasm! Merci!

    Fun! Here it is the rainy season, and some people are facing serious flooding. It’s not much fun for them, and I feel for them. I am just lucky to live at the top of a hill, but that is just good fortune. Anyway, I’m happy to hear that you are enjoying good gardening weather, and I loved your poem. With love from Jenny.
