A spring wish


daffodil days
lemon-sunned beneath dapples
rippled with water songs
and the sky pale as a new egg

I can taste the turning
in the wind-whisper
riffling soft through the drifts
of last year’s sorrows
letting them fly

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. Oh what a marvelous poem. I see visions of Spring in your lovely words. Much appreciated today as we sit up here in the Northwest at a steady -28C (includes wind chill factor). Thank you, so much.❄❄❄❄💐

      1. Hahaha! Palm trees.. 🤣🤣🤣 Thanks for the memories. I was born in the tropics yes. But most of the rest if my life in the “not Tropics”. And oh..it has warmed up now to -22C…Yahoo yay!🤣

  2. You have daffodils?? Though I suppose if ours came up now, they wouldn’t last long.
    I love
    “I can taste the turning

    It’s something I would think (of course). 😀

    1. Everything is coming up now, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths and the wild flowers. There’s been a deluge of rain and now it’s very mind though not particularly sunny. I hope it doesn’t get cold again…

      Of course you would—the wind spreads the same rumours where you are 🙂
