The Surprise of Spring

Terri Bonow

March 17, 2015

Spring flowers with delicate petals

Emerge forth in amazing colors.

Azaleas, pansies, ornamental trees 

Declare their worth in a fragrant breeze.

Green stemmed onions, rosemary, and sage

Grow full of wonder at this stage.

Cool nights, sunny days, rain 

A blessed relief when it came.

My garden is nurtured with the drizzly                                        

I dance, the cat lounges in it deliciously.

Earth’s beauty and changing seasons

Stirs my soul with there is the reason!

Spring shows lovely, inspiring phases daily

While the season evolves gently, slowly, surely.

Full of beauteous change and flavors,

I am astounded with earth’s seasonal colors!

Spring Poem

Remembering the Spring Season

Hard rain with blistering blustering winds

Charges through the town.

Winter’s almost gone

Bringing in some spring scenes.                                            

While water drips down

On the foggy windows

Splattering sounds abound.

Grey, grey, grey shadows

Run with rivulets of water in meadows.

Still droughts are all around

Yet water sparks the seeds and

Drenches the flowering ground.

Grass so green grows abundant

The dandelions, rhododendrons  bloom.

Small insects, bees are seen

Busy finding  pollen to glean.

Large streams swell, the rivers tumble

Rocks, mud and debris fill oceans.

And elegant water birds seen feeding

On mudflats, lowlands and fields.

They raise in grand swirls

To meet the weathered world.

Spring rains, storms are exciting

So strong they make one bend.

We struggle to stay standing

Remembering the spring season again.
