spring fever

tides roar
chests charging skyward-  
spring fever is on



finger buds rising
greening fields-
wild flowers frolicking by feet
of trees-
raindrops scenting faces  
of tulips- 
birdsongs everywhere-



tiny cherry blooms unveiling
delicate parasols, pink eyelets



I am stilled
in the arms of beauty

  11. I love the contrast between the busy atmosphere of the main body of the poem and the stillness of the final lines, Grace, especially:
    'raindrops scenting faces
    of tulips'
    and
    'tiny cherry blooms unveiling
    delicate parasols...'

  17. Sigh, how lovely. I look forward to an experience such as this when we migrate back north. It will be touch and go as we are expecting floods when the snow melts in the Sierra. Your poem is so "stilling."
