A Walk Through Spring. Monday's Inspiration 67, an Offering to Verlie Burroughs (Snakeslane)
Note: la piscina in the poem means 'swimming pool.'
I rise at dawn, to the melody of starlings,
Echoing in my surroundings. From my window,
I could see the terrace adjacent to la piscina,
As red mulberries glow with the streaming Light.
Hyacinths unfurl their purple leaves, as the
Light kisses their yellow stamens.
Tulips and daisies gleam in the sunlight, singing of
Grandeur, to the waltzing cherry blossoms.
It is a season of new growth, as renewal pushes
Out the mists of fog and darkness. The sun gleaming
Through an opal sky, kisses the tapestry of colours below;
My Heart drips joy, with the pride of morning dew.
The symphony of nature dances, performing wonders in a
Soul weeping beauty, cascading magic, like the flowers.
Deep down in the meadow of the valley of Love,
A clay pathway winds its way to the undulating hills.
The décor of the flora is way past amazing, as the lustrous
Heaven, hugs the trees and foliage. I close my eyes;
Walk in serenity to the seashore, see the waves splash and the
Rocks steeped with rugged beauty, whispering praises to God.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 23rd March, 2020.
- Awakening the Inner Light -
The old man is gone
As the universe sings to me.
My Heart dances once again,
As my river of joy flows, dispersing
The cobwebs of yesteryear. - Manatita
What does spring mean to you?
