It’s a Spring Thing! (plus a timely quote below my post)

The other day I posted two poems by my Zoom mates from Creative Writing on the end of winter and the beginning of spring. This week the prompt is on spring itself. Here is my poem for spring with my photos.

It’s a Spring Thing!


Mother Nature never fails
To be the wind behind our sails.


Think of yellow daffodils
Their sunny faces that give us thrills.

How ‘bout tulips’ many hues
To chase away the winter blues?


And azalea bushes in purple and pink
Cheering us up, no need to think.

Trees are starting to “bloom” in green,
Creating a canopy with a lovely scene.


Spring’s a welcome, lovely season.
Enjoy it now, whatever your reason!

I saw this pillow in a store a couple of years ago and couldn’t
resist capturing  it on my camera.

P.S. I receive quotes every day from “Loving Each Day.” This one is too timely not to post in full with source information:

It is a time when we human beings, as individuals and as a group, are becoming aware that not only do we have a fervent yearning for peace,
we also have the capability of making it happen. We can put our loving energy into declaring peace instead of war.

-John-Roger, DSS

Spring Poems from Stanley Fink & Mary Lou Meyers

Here are two poems from friends in the Creative Writing Group that I attend virtually.
WINTER
by Stanley Fink*
Old Winter unwinds
South wind breathes
Green leaves sprout
Primavera, no doubt.
*Stanley has two books of poems on Amazon:
Living Dangerously and Twilight/Kiss of Light and Dark

SPRING

By Mary Lou Meyers*

Who knows the majesty of snow

until it sinks down below

reviving the clods of Earth below

once cold from misery wanting refreshment

till the sun and rain revive in increments

springing into the season yet to come,

a colorful anthem of Hope.

Surcease of warring factions save roses to compete

from wanton Grief,

release of Powers that be

only in a garden

do we find such Peace and Ecstasy.

* I will be reviewing Mary Lou’s latest book, Isolation & Revelation in April, National Poetry Month, but may post some of the poems this month.
