Overtures of Spring





Moments burst, then twirl and swirl
Unfurling hours through the air
Rapid exhale, wild enigma
Painting portraits, raw and rare

Though grim gale hurls snow-storm spasms
Its insistence cannot quench
Dormant daydreams in the garden
And the bud that tree limbs clench

Soon will stir a ruby rustle
And what seemed a hopeless thing
Spills into nature’s spacious parlor
In grand overtures of Spring

  2. As I look out of my window right now, snow's coming down. I love this season, but I also long for spring. It's good to know it's there, as "dormant daydreams in the garden". Beautiful!
    Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog! :-)
