Spring Unprompted

photo source

April brings clouds,
dreamlike, ethereal, feathery

Gaining height,
intensely jeweled kites lift

May’s newly opened pink quince

Rain showers tease umbrellas

Violets, wisteria  xplode

Yellowweed zydeco.

submitted for 2 prompts from Imaginary Garden With Real Toads:

Feel like I'm standing in that garden, and it is good.


Mary said...

Wow! You did A - Z so well.

Margaret said...

I read it through and didn't realize this was an A-Z poem until I read the end! Nicely done!
