ANTICIPATION

One day, flowers will bloom again
and I will cup their velvety petals
like treasures in my hands

One day, birds will sing again
and my heart will beat
in harmony with their song

One day, the sun will be warm again
and the earth and rivers will wake
and the air will burst with life

So I savor winter
like a seed biding its time to spring

  1. I love the winter scene you paint here Imelda and the patience in allowing a season to show all her beauty and the hope, oh the hope in your words makes me feel very safe.

  2. Love the alliteration in your poem, and it’s so wonderfully written. So full of patience and hope. Also a lovely winter wonderland photo πŸ™‚ Stay warm, and hopefully sunshine comes your way soon πŸ™‚

    • Ha! I had to read again to see the alliterations and there they were. Thanks for pointing them out. πŸ™‚

      the pictures were from Maine in early January. The weather has been kinder to us since then, especially where we are. We are, in fact, having quite a lot of rains.
      I hope you have a great week, Mabel.
