Sedoka week V (Thursday)

5 of 7

Shouting to the world
laughter grows and gathers pace
to turn back the growing tide
Softened by Springtime
Gentleness and comfort spreads
there with a warming embrace

Sedoka week 2 (Monday)

2 of 7

For life continues
still in these uncertain days
Springtime comes and sun still shines
and mornings still dawn
for days when bright moments can
now be seized, captured and held

Bluebell

In winter I’m dormant
biding my time
But come Spring I emerge
when the weather is fine
Then I’ll mirror the sky
as my vibrant blue grows
when I blossom and flourish
and my true beauty shows
But as summer begins
I’ll return to the ground
to sleep for a while
’til next Spring comes round
I am Bluebell and lovely
and though my lifetime is slight
You’ll remember my presence
For I am Springtime’s delight

Verdant

Luxuriant this time of year
the grass is verdant green
And unless I am mistaken
looks the best it’s ever been

It’s thick and lush and lovely
and loves the springtime sun
which bathes it in a golden light
until the day is done

Day 22 in the ‘Blogging from A-Z challenge

A warming

Blue in garden
Springtime green
Open window
Bright sunbeam
Weather warming
yellow too
Sunshine beckons
pastel hue

Grass grows longer
green abounds
Buds appearing
Springtime sounds
Cold wind fading
warming breeze
Waves receding
Paddling seas

Beach huts open
boats back out
Springtime’s here
there is no doubt
This is a warming
time of year
all to bring us
smiles and cheer
