… back from my travels… I turn around and once again, it’s Almost April
on frigid earth,
and buried bulbs unfurl
their green fingers —
a cold cauldron sits
atop a flame,
as approaching dawn.
when softest tones tiptoe
through purple darkness,
and wakening lark arises
in radiant song,

Welcome back Dee – and with what a lovely poem to share with us 🙂
Almost April, almost morning, almost laughter – yes, almost there.
Peace and blessings,
Thank you, Eric. I’ve been away for a while, traveling — now coping with jet lag and getting back to normalcy. Peace and best wishes, Dee
Beautiful spring blooms to encourage my day – we’ve been hit by a wicked snowstorm which has caused accidents, closed highways, and caused general trouble hereabouts…
Hi Melody, a wicked snowstorm at the arrival of spring is indeed difficult to deal with. Stay safe and warm! I hope the saying still holds true that “March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb”. The warm and mellow days are not far behind. 🙂 Dee
Faith holds onto spring even when the senses say winter – I’ll stay off those treacherous highways when I can, and wait it out! 🙂
Amen, Faith holds onto spring. 🙂
Truly beautiful…thank you for this wonderful testament to Spring.
Thank you, Susan. I am excited about the coming of Spring, the prospect of warmer and more colorful days. Dee
Well, see – here you are! Dee, what a completely wonderful and beautiful poem – just brought a smile to my face. I am dreaming of almost April on a very snowy early spring night – K
Thanks, Kathleen for your encouragement! Stay warm and enjoy the beauty of a snowy early spring night. Like you, I am dreaming of almost April! Dee
I really really like the lines
a cold cauldron sits
atop a flame,”
I wish, I wish I had written them myself. Excellent poem.
