Reflections on a Spring Day

I wander out in stark wilderness 
where goldenrod kisses a sailor blue sky 
and chartreuse leaves of pink buttercups 
sway in a contrary March wind 
spreading pungent lemony pollen 
tempting even recalcitrant bees

I lie down amidst this chaos of life 
buzzing and blooming all around me
nostalgic for my ardent youth 
when hours slowly ambled 
into bright summer’s song 
and the thought of dying 
never invaded my soul

I close my eyes and for a fleeting moment
I am young again, carefree- dancing among wildflowers
while a seductive breeze caresses my flawless tanned skin

  2. I love everything about this write, Linda. Most especially these words:
    “a contrary March wind
    spreading pungent lemony pollen
    tempting even recalcitrant bees”
    You’ve described the transition into spring so well here….and also the transition into the stage in life (for whatever reason we come to it, naturally or not, by ageing or illness or accident) when the days ahead seem less than those behind us. It causes us to reflect…and for me, to be thankful for every day regardless of what it brings. Sending you spring joy, Linda.

    I loved this entire poem from start to finish, Linda, but I really loved the way you connected your stanzas. Everything just streamed together into one. Lovely.

    Yours,

  4. Ah, there are those moments when we see ourselves once again full of youthful exuberance, dancing amongst the wildflowers. Sigh

  6. Lovely poem. We’ve had a couple of wonderfully warm days here, and that put me in mind of summer. However there is a predication for freezing weather next week so it’s not quite time to crack out the shorts yet.
