where creative minds can interact





A pear tree drapes herself in white lace,
Blushing behind clouds as she slips on her garter,
Preparing to renew vows to Spring.


A hard mint winter is finished
She trembling in breeze, gown billowing,
Cloud curtain parting, morning sizzling.


Colored birds fire up their instruments,
Singing fluted emotional melodies,
Let the bride be the envy of nature
Let the bride dance and be desired


And she waltzes in wind, scattering fragrance and lace,
Luring all to her fiesta,
Earth sighing, breathing and remembering,
The yearly celebration.


And Spring, giddy as ever, sprinkles guests with flower cake
And rich vanilla ice cream promises,
Of more to come.


But he saves the best for her,
Ringing lavender tulips beneath her skirt
A wedding band of promise,
Which melts cold winter limbs,
Now written in white.

A hard mint winter, hmm, never heard it put that way before...nice. I really like this and yeah, makes me yearn for spring. I like the picture you chose to go with it too.
