Spring

.

Life stirs after winter’s death,

Its long, cold sleep thru the snow and sleet,

Bare twigs and dead sticks

Tingle with awakening

And new life shows its nose

Gingerly testing before resurrecting;

A time of marvels and miracles

Where life lives and death dies

Under lightening skies.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  5. How quickly it changes too.. I guess that’s why they call it spring… one day the skeletons of trees show through the woods and the next (it seems) green dots appear on the extremities, and then at the blink of an eye, poof, you can’t see the trees, for the leaves. Very nice poem Denise.

  8. Your verse, “Tingle with awakening…” so powerful and wonderful. I can sense the energy of the plants coming to life and giving birth—especially as spring is unfolding right here in the Northeast as well. Really beautiful!

    • It’s so lovely to see you again, Cin. I hope you are busy reinventing yourself. This is my 3rd reincarnation, so to speak! Pre-, post- and now, well, it remains to be seen, but it looks very interesting from here…

    • Thanks, Jeannie, we’re at the opposite end of the spectrum, but I like to picture the thawing juices inside the plants taking nourishment to the new growth…

  15. I like the images of both a young animal poking out from the place where it was hiding and the image of an infant animal being newly born which the line “new life shows its nose” conjures.
