Hello all! Spring is almost here, although I know that many of you are still looking out your windows at the snow. I am hopeful that you will start to see signs of springtime soon! Here is a poem for spring, and it will be wonderful to see more flowers coming into bloom in a little while.
As Sunshine Sits
Sunshine sits upon a canvas of orange,
The silky petals eager for mouthfuls of warmth that
They have not digested in months.
The furrows of a leathery face above have
Stems of their own that still sit within
Backseats of moments when she was only a child.
The ground feels warm under her bare feet as
She leans forward to touch the bright orbs,
While the grains of days ahead do play within her mind.
