First, here's a poem for Spring (previously posted on this blog)


In this greenest of grass
Where the cracked ivy winds
Ever searching to burrow
Buttercups nod to the sun
This blaze of egg-yolk yellow
Set in a wash of purest blue
Here, in the mind’s eye
The imagination runs wild
A neon-blue dragonfly
Flits delicate gossamer wings
Whirring to create a current
Of moving air to play upon
Against nature’s own breeze
These valleys dive deep below
Verdant fields of lowing sheep
Unrestrained by fences
Wandering as free as they will
Bowing to the buttercups bobbing
Where the dragonfly hums

  3. Love your poetry Vickie. It's always so fresh. :)

  4. The one thing I like about the spring is being able to open the windows after having them shut up for such a long time! That first whiff of nice fresh spring air is enough to bring a great big ol' smile to the face.

    'Dragonfly' is such a great poem! Thank you for that :D Now it's making me want a glimpse of spring even though it's snowing outside. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Happy Spring one and all and have a terrific day!
