Spring Bling

Standard

I missed the blog last week as I had a horrible cold.  I thought it was allergies, but found at the Book Fest last weekend, that many people had the same symptoms that I had encountered the previous week.

While at the Book Fest I attended a few workshops and one was on poetry writing.  We were given a choice of starting sentences to complete in five minutes.  I’m sharing that, unedited, poem with you……

Displaced Pollen

Daffodil Petals

You wake up, and you do not know

How this splendid Spring morning

Will help your garden to grow

Your eyes scan the flowers, with a sense to see

Those beautiful colors

Feeding the honey bees

Yellow’s my favorite, color of all

Those flowers they grow

Some stout and some small

But surely my favorite, flower to smell

Comes on the Daffodil petals

Distinctively shaped, like a bell

If you haven’t seen this years daffodils yet, please take note of them when they arrive.  They are long gone in California, as everything bloomed so early this year.  

I can’t wait to see them again next spring.

They truly are my favorite.
