Spring

By Marilyn (LaraOct7@aol.com)


Spring! When we watch the seasons change we know that Mother Nature is in control. For many of us, the days grow longer and the cold winds cease.

What is Spring like in your part of the world? At my house I'm seeing bird nests being built in our pine trees. I'm seeing a lot of rain! My tulips are blooming and so are my late daffodils. The blue pansies and little grape hyacinths add a lot of color to my flower beds.

But Spring is more than flowers and rain. Maybe to you it means extra house cleaning? A Spring vacation? Why not take a few minutes and jot down some musings. A poem would be very much appreciated, and so would a short story. Spring is the topic. We look forward to your entry.

Spring

By Sharon (ByGolly25@aol.com)


Spring sprang then it did went
In the desert, heat is sent
Wild flowers bloom so bright
The sun bakes them just right


While the flowers are in bloom
Sneezes sound like sonic boom
Larry lizard comes out to bask
To eat him is Falcon's task


Birds nesting during early spring
Little ones soon take to wing
Now the temps start to rise
Wearing sun hats is quite wise


Pale legs appear in pants so short
A/C turned on we all resort
When others notice 75 degrees
We here in desert wish for a breeze


Spring sprang then it did went
In the desert, heat is sent
But I love it, don't you know
There is no worry of a late snow

SPRING HERE NOW AT LAST
THE LONG WINTER HAS GONE BY
I SEE, FEEL AND KNOW


PUT WINTER TO SLEEP
SMILE AS I CHANGE FOR SUMMER
HAPPY FOR WARM DAYS


ENJOY THE LONG SPELL OUTDOORS
SEE BIRDS, BEES, FLOWERS
SUNRISE ANDSUNSETS AND THE MOON
THANK YOU LOVELY SPRING









 

Spring (Diana writes from the state of Washington)

By Diana Mercedes Howell(writerworks@live.com)


Yesterday a hummingbird hovered outside my window briefly and then zoomed off. I have noticed more bird activity from bush to bush and limb to limb. I saw my first Stellar's Jay today. Heard one last week. Heard my first White Crown Sparrow last week, their familiar song: Hip-hip-hooray-spring-is-here-again! that will be with us all summer long and into autumn.

The trees renewal is staggered. Some non-yielding fruit trees have been in bloom for weeks. Many other trees are still undressed, not even a nascent bud. Tulip trees are blossoming from their sunny side first to their shade side. Dogwoods' lime green blossoms will be white by next week.

Later on toward June, Douglas Firs will extend their needles by an inch or two or three. The new needlles will be lighter green and soft, like new born babies are soft.

Shopping carts are filled with card board boxes of starts, for flowering, borders and ground cover. Sacks of fertilizer and sod are being loaded into trunks and hatchbacks. Yes the humans are coming out again too.

Insects, a few I have seen. Rhodies princely blooms unfold this time of year. Soon loud shades of spring and summer flowers: petunias, marigolds, impatiens, lobelia, ranunculas and cosmos bloom in a symphony of color.

Aaahh, how long we have waited, the cold we have endured, the wet, the damp, the dark. Spring is here at last, breaking the silence, slowly bird by bird, bloom by bloom until the earth is alive...and we are too.
