~ Spring Moments ~


footsteps fall softly
on a trail of pink pedals
tracing the winds path
swirling like noisy leaves
a gust of sparrows


gathering clouds
the moment before dark
a flash of lightning
as the frog jumps
into the sounds of rain

at the seashore, low tide
as daylight disappears
the sky went pink
and the ocean beneath it
blushed in response

Don't think I have ever read a poem of springtime with more eloquence and without all the hoopla which usually comes with this so-called most cherished season . . . Give me a bare-limbed tree silhouetted against the darkening sky and I'm happy . . . Very nicely done, Carole . . .
