April Glory Story

PAD Challenge day 15: For today's prompt, take the phrase "(blank) Story," 
replace the blank with a word or phrase, 
make the new phrase the title of your poem, 
and then, write your poem.

Enjoying a taste of early spring in Ontario!


Once upon a time she was
akin to distant stars
while snowflakes swirled
and winter hurled 
its venom from yon bars
to howl at doors
and tap on windows
shuttered to the cold
that now, in warmth 
of April charm
melts into green and gold

Janet Martin

p.s. today however, Old Man Winter
is doing his best to change the title to 
April Hoary-Story 


  1. lovely take on the prompt and I always love your photos

    1. thank-you as always! I was hoping to get another crack at this prompt but the day disappeared!


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
