Bright blooms

suggest spring:

carefree days,

novelty,

Bright blooms

celebrate spring:

gratitude,

optimism.

Summer soon.

Two geese fly

over the lake

bringing spring

with each flap

of their wings.

The ground hog says

it will be early spring

but even if he did not,

the blue sky and balmy breeze

today asserted its own opinion.

We are planted

with potentiality;

white blanketed rest bids us wait

until spring gives us the urge to rise

to skies and find our fate.

This April snow

fills the air with pink petals and

scents the sky with spring.

Little horns of sunshine

exclaiming on my table,

‘Daffodils mean spring!’

The birds return

set sights on sites and sing

in fervor with that mating thing

You take to the road

push pedals for a hundred k

while I wait for petals,

seek something to say

and all of these are just the way

we mark each new spring.

Me.  You.  New.

too.
