Passing spring


luscious spring blossoms

soon fall back to their roots

these tree leaves will last

offering summer shelter

as spring fades to a dream


buds unfurl to leaves

marking the passage of spring

woodland flowers fade

while a fresh canopy grows

spring sparkles as memory

  1. While escaping our seemingly onslaught of several weeks of rain – we headed north –
    So I got to see ‘Spring’ twice. As the blooms there were just coming into full blossoms.
    Beds of tulips, blossoming trees – Just a delight to walk hand in hand with a gentle breeze of the
    Niagara and Horseshoe falls – on both the Canadian and American sides. 🙂
