"I have remained alive / Enduring what seems like eternity / But I will bloom and thrive / Conquered and occupied by bird and bee / A. D. 2005"

Transcendental Sonnet #1291:

Inch by Inch Sparrow by Finch


I have seen the first calla lily come

And today I found the first nasturtium

As inch by inch

Sparrow by finch

Hummingbird by butterfly

Flash of sunshine in the sky

The signs of spring happen by


And I am so glad to see them arrive

They cannot get here fast enough for me

I have remained alive

Enduring what seems like eternity

But I will bloom and thrive

Conquered and occupied by bird and bee

A. D. 2005

I can certainly emphazize with this one Steven and I may have a little longer to go to see the flowers this far up North your poem gives me hope. It is also nice to see that Silkie's art will be as immortal as her spirit.

Yes Spring is a time to rejoice, when one has endured the ccccold of the winter. As we head into fall here :)

Send that early spring in the direction of NJ, it may be getting a bit warmer, 50's instead of 0's, but it is still winter and the worst "could" be yet to come...still I enjoy hearing of a touch of spring somewhere in the world...Peace thru Nature, Ed & Rufuz

Ilove this and it reminds me of the battle for me at times against cancer. Excellent artwork and the poem is wonderful too.
