beneath stately trees

bow white flowers

heavy with rain

quenching winter thirst

strides springโ€™s triumph

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I like the word picture you’ve created here. I’m imagining some kind of formal dance from the past that goes with it. I think it’s because of the words stately and bow.

  2. How lovely, Jane. I can see your words. We finally got a thunderstorm the other night. Pounding rain, thunder, lightning, hail! We jumped up from our beds to gawk out the window. It’s been almost two years since we had a storm. Lovely! โค

      1. It’s been super dry. We are desert prairie for the most part anyway. Pray for rain! LOL! โค
