spring rain



may it be
your laughter
that greets me
wide-eyed as ruby-cherise petals
opening their faces to

spring rain
storming dry garden with dewdrops
scent of magnolia, chorus of robins, owls hooting
from the distance

every morning 
may it be
(you)
eternally in spring time

  1. This is wonderful plea... there has to be someone (you) when spring is as lovely as you describe with your compound nouns...
