Magnolias paint grandeur on the April skies
and lilacs lend their sweetness to the spring air
as cherry blossoms unfurl their silken shade
only to rain blushing kisses everywhere
Apple blossoms secrete the flavors of fall
but Dogwoods with their blood-tipped petals recall
His journey from the cross to resurrection.

DVerse Poets’ Pub LIST Poem prompt
A bowl of daffodils by the window
Looking at the grey skies and falling snow
convey my prayers for a cheerful day
To frighten those sad winter ghosts away
That my heart may sing hymns and
Of the wonders that each season delivers.
Another winter storm just blew over. Today, we have sunny skies magnifying the whiteness of the ground. The ground, long deprived of snow, has now plenty of it. I guess, the rivers will be overflowing come spring time. And that is good.
Happy Monday to you, Friends.
DVerse Poets’ Quadrille 26 Prompt – Ghost
When only autumn daisies bloom
and the air reeks of rotting fungi
when all the leaves there are
are on the ground
and beauty is hard to find
when all the world is wrapped in frost
and there's no warmth to have
when all the breeze bears is a sombre dirge
when all comfort has been stripped away
and nothing else remains
what are you?
Stars strewn on the ground
God making a happy day
