Pink III

I’m bold and I’m gorgeous
Bright in the sun
Pink, I am all about
life that’s begun
And I have no comparison
for tears or a smile
As you’ll not see such beauty
again for a while

Pastel Pink

Pastel pink and gorgeous
Marshmallow-like the blossom swells
on over-laden tree boughs lovely
As every April springtime tells

And there is nought to touch this
rather splendid time of year
This blossom outpouring wonder
there to bring us cheer

About time…

Although it’s still winter
by the library today
I spotted some blossom
in the trees by the way
Pink and quite lovely
so in spite of the chill
it spoke of a promise
with a pleasure here still
that Springtime is coming
and not far away
An end to the winter?
About time I’d say

December blossom

There’s blossom in the bushes
even though it’s now December
And I know it’s been quite warm of late
but you’d think it would remember
That winter sun although still bright
deceives with days of chill
and Spring is several months away
with quite some waiting still
Don’t get me wrong though, I’m quite pleased
to see these buds of pink
I’m just surprised and know the chill
will stop their growth I think

Cherry Tree

Yes, I know my pretty blossom
looks quite lovely in the sun
But just you wait ’til later on
when summer months are done

It’s really not so very long
just four short months or so
Before another treasure
I’ll be ready here to show

For then my fruit I’ll share with you
and I know that you’ll be grateful
With bowls of luscious cherries
sampled from your kitchen table

Blossom for promise
Twenty-seventeen arrives
pink and baby-like

Apple blossom promise

We have a little apple tree
which grows bigger by the year
Its starting to sprout blossom
but no fruit has yet appeared
No matter, for its flowers
show that it is biding time
before producing apples
which I’m sure will taste just fine

So I’m really looking forward
to a summer when we’ll see
Little apples growing
on our little apple tree
For then come Autumn’s shadow
we will harvest every one
And celebrate first tasting
born from days of summer sun

Perhaps we’ll make a little wine
or a cider if you please
Or maybe apple chutney
to eat with winter cheese
But that time it still has yet to come
as we have yet to see the show
From the apple blossom promise
that some fruit’s begun to grow
