SPRING MORNING

Sundrenched mornings open the day
 sprinkling  diamonds on  sleepy grass
as mist lifts and then   dissipates
puffing the clouds dotting azure skies.

Sparrows twitter up on the trees,
glossy feathers waving in the wind
their bellies filled with early worms
once working on the warming ground.

Silken threads swing from budding twigs
luminous in the spreading light
bearing caterpillars searching 
for   some tender leafy delight.

Shadows recede and colors blur
as busy  folks rush through the day
but the ancient trees stand their ground
to weave  lace with their bursting buds. 


For DVerse's Meeting the Bar, Bjorn wants folks to write a poem inspired by impressionism.  I do not know if I cleared the bar, but it was sure fun thinking of spring. :-)

  3. Spring has certainly made an impression on you, Imelda ๐Ÿ˜‰ “Shadows recede and colors blur” I love this line and it’s the perfect depiction of spring. Spring has sprung for you, and lovely shot to go with your poetry as usual. It is still rather warm here in Melbourne and I am enjoying every moment of it before autumn and winter well and truly hits ๐Ÿ˜€

    • I think we are indeed well on our way to spring. We are getting rains instead of spring snow which is mush preferable. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a lovely autumn. Post photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Spring is my favorite season. This part is beautifully worded:
