Poem: The First Demise of Winter

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

The first demise of winter is about her waiting to see the first sign of Spring, the crocus bloom. Her mood is happier just thinking about the crocus peeping their little sprouts out from the ground. Actually emerging among the snow letting her know wintertime is leaving. Spring is on it's way.

The First Demise of Winter

Awaiting the first sign
of Winter’s demise,
to see the crocus bloom.

She thinks of those tiny plants
peeping their little sprouts
out from the ground,
making her mood happier
during this dismal season of winter.

What a sight to see
when they actually emerge among the snow,
blooming in Easter egg colors
as she waits for her favorite bright purple ones to bloom.

Letting her know
wintertime is leaving
giving life to spring,
putting joy in her heart
with a smile of relief.

Thanks for reading my work, Patricia.

I so enjoy Springtime. The ending of a long, cold winter when I am ready to be outside.

The first signs of Spring are always the best.

And of course, Angels.

The wonder of spring is a joy each time it comes. The newness captivates me each year. Angels are on the way ps

Thank you Verlie! I rather enjoyed challenging myself.

Brenda, This is so simple, sweet, and hopeful! I look to the flowers too, to mark the passages in time, they are never late. Thank you for mentioning the Tuesday poetry forum, it's heartening to see you take it one step further writing this longer piece.
