Spring's Goddess



Sunday Wordle #58: blur, cocoon, tongue, brittle, burnished, flinty, scrape, rough, barnacles, austere, drenched, chalk

The flinty glare of winter recedes to a blur
The rough, brittle limb and austere, burnished fields
Are drenched in the ravishing textures of Her
As in countless shades Her abundance she yields

The cocoon-bud breaks open in Her verdant embrace
Barnacles bloom beneath Her florid brush
She is a tongue of emerald grace
Scraping winter’s chalk-lines from hills fair and lush

Earth is a ball-room of aureate bliss
Softly we touch the robe of this queen
For beauty and blossom unfurls in her kiss
She is spring’s goddess and her name is Green

  1. Janet, that last line was stunning.

  2. Janet- so glad I found this. It is exquisite, you have such an eye and heart for the right words. That is also a gorgeous photos.

    I don't think I saw it linked to the Sunday Whirl. I read a comment from you somewhere, it said you very busy and unable to comment much at this time. Please know that is ok with me- I do that a lot too. I am just glad to know your blog is still here and you are still writing. Life is busy... and I think sometimes it is all we can do to write. Stay well.

  3. teri, thank-you for your kind understanding. Yes, life is busy and I feel that it is unfair to link if I know I do not have time to read, I know I will return when schedules free a little. the evening is often the time when I read and comment but right now my daughter needs the computer every week-end and evening so I am trying to be patient. I read and comment where and when I can Thank-you again for telling me you understand.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit! I welcome and appreciate, if thought you care to speak; the value and the input of compliment or critique
