Adolescent spring

spring poem

Spring is truly on its way where I live—something that makes poem-writing in April a lot easier. This is one of my poem-a-day efforts from this week along with the scene that inspired it.

    Nice! Hopefully we’ll start seeing some green 5:00 shadow around here!

      I hope that for you too, Matt. We’re having a lovely spring, but I’m starting to feel guilty talking it up because there is still snow in so many places!

    Not only is that a great poem, but the shape of a face in the sky is a great match.

      Thanks Catherine. And you see a face in the sky? You have the best imagination!

    April is my absolute favorite month! The new green is breathtaking sometimes.

    I love this! We are at that green shadow stage too and I find it enchanting.

    Lovely poem, especially the line: “spring’s five o’clock shadow”. Thanks for sharing your spring…=)

    Your poem made me smile…spring’s five-o’clock shadow is something we are so ready for.

    To find a new way to speak about spring is truly wonderful, Violet. “Five o’clock shadow”-exactly! Sadly, we only seem to be in early adolescence. Thank you Violet-gorgeous photo, too!
