The first day of spring
has come and gone
and only a speck
of sun has shown
Instead, tears fall
from the sky at dawn
and leaves remain

you’ll know that poetry inspiration has been nil.
These words recently came to me though, and I
hope you enjoy.)

Ah, the “Spring” opportunity is symbolic of a time of potential positive change, but change has to be grasped or we remain in the dismal winter of complacency.
Your insight is wonderful, Ian, and so true. Your comment proves that poems can be perceived in various ways. And I love the depth in which you dove into after reading this, so thank you!
I love your poem Lauren! Hugs and blessings!
Thanks, Wendell! Hugs and blessings to you,too, my friend!
Beautiful piece, spring not showing much…
Thanks, PJ, and the same for us, except today the sun is finally showing itself. xo
You very welcome, it was showing dis morning here and went into hiding..lol
Loved it Lauren! Catching up on your work today! Congrats on your book too and praying blessings on it as well as all your endeavors!
Thanks so much, Ericka! I appreciate your time and blessings. Have a wonderful tomorrow! ♥
Great to see the muse return, Lauren!
Well, in a very small way, but every little bit helps. Thanks, Jean!
Wow Lauren these are beautiful words.
Thanks, Kim, a little inspiration about the weather came through. 🙂
Freezing rain for us. Yay, spring!
I know, but spring weather is arriving slowly even for us. 🙂 But the sun came out today!
Lovely poem, Lauren. Spring has been slow in coming, but the daffodils and the flowering trees say it has finally arrived, even though Mr. Sun hasn’t been convinced. Hugs, dear Lauren.
Thanks, Michelle! This poem came from the one little drop of inspiration I had, and the sun finally came out today. 🙂 Sending hugs your way, my friend, and it’s good to see you!
I love the way you write Lauren, it’s outstanding! 🙂
Thanks so much, Seyi; that’s very nice of you to say! 🙂
Easter gives hope for tomorrow,
As after the winter comes Spring.
Our hearts can be filled with gladness
As hearts rejoice and sing.
Thanks, Marko, and I wish you a very Happy Easter, too!
You still have it, Lauren 🙂
Thanks, Eric, and it’s good to see you again! Hope all is well with you and your family! 🙂
I try to bring myself to new beginnings now and then and not necessarily connected to any occasion or time of year. Not anything earth shattering but even if just to add a little oxygen to my outlook.
I’ve done the same thing, good idea, Carl!
Sometimes a break is healthy and refreshing Lauren. Fear not the passage of time…the blessings of your recent words shall always enlighten and bid your eventual return. Good to see your words again. My lateness in arriving comes with apology. Life has had me otherwise engaged.
Thanks so much, Don, for your kind, kind words. I’m checking in but not returning yet. I honestly don’t think I will be because I’m focusing on classes right now, along with family, etc. Who knows? But it’s been great meeting you and I feel the same way when I read your poetry! Take care and I hope life has had you happily engaged and not stressed…
