My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

A Nod and a Wink to Early Spring


early spring

It’s coming.

The quickening pace.

Fragrance of the still frozen, yet warming soil.

The underground network of…

Vines, forgotten seeds and satiny bulbs: wait.

Wait, for the soft touch of the Sun-fairy’s magic wand.

Shifts everywhere.

The horizon, the sun.

Birds return.

Water rises.

Animals venture out.

Earth awakens slowly. 

The promise: again renewed.

Life sustained.

As we wait for and anticipate.

The joyful arrival of spring.

PS: Having a browse around my archives this morning and found this spring poem and photo.

Can you tell I’ve got spring on my mind, in a big way. 😉

Also did a bit of revising. Hope you enjoy this new version! 

Have a wonderful day. 🙂

  1. simply magic…. here in idaho it is still cold and “sorta” snowy… evergreens who knew they could speak so loudly..

  2. “Can you tell I’ve got spring on my mind, in a big way. ”

    Yes, I think a lot of people do right now, with the severe cold and snow of this winter.

    Lovely poem!

    Enjoy your evening, my friend!

  3. looking forward to it!

  4. Lovely spring poem. I can’t wait for sunny, warm days. It’s been so dreary and grey here, for too long now.

  5. Oh G. that is so beautiful and oh so foreign to me…we are in the full cold and storms of winter and it’s not letting go…..good for you, you deserve good weather

  6. strangely I am only anticipating spring when I’m outside in the cold but sweet poem.

    hope you have a great day.

  7. Thanks Ms. Pie! We got a bit of snow this week too but I think it will be gone soon again.

    Thanks Ron, you are so kind!

    Me too Rose. 😉

    Joe, And another one on the way today it seems. 😦 Oh well, this too shall pass. Can’t do anything about the weather, except ignore it, when it doesn’t suit!

    Thanks Lorraine. I hope you get a break in the East soon. What a wicked winter it’s been down there and more snow on the way I’ve heard. Just amazing.

    Hope you have a great day too Lissa. Nice to see you again.

    Happy Weekend to All, G
