A Spring Alouette

Blue wildflowers dance,
bowing as they glance
at a rose-bush of baby pink
beginning to bloom,
creating perfume
as sweet as a Mai-Tai drink.

Old winter’s shadow
has shot an arrow
through to a portal of spring.
Daffodils beam at
a bright sun’s gleam that
says, it’s good fortune I bring.

I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  3. I wish spring would hurry up and arrive! Your poem made me wish for it more. You pull off rhyme very naturally.
