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.
