Some claim April rain (Grace of Words like Foam on Waves)
brings the blossoms of May, but
trees here are hasty
like youth, ardor unrestrained ( Margaret - Art Happens 365)
eager for springs first sweet kiss
Sakura blossoms (Kerry O'Connor of Skylover)
In the arms of old man tree
Drops of moonlit milk
showgirls will perform a dance Ella's Edge
inspired by Moon light's embrace
her graceful waves in Laurie Kolp Poetry
a risque spring ballet, legs
kick the darkened sky
stars wink at rainbow feathers Susie Clevenger of Confessions of a L.G.
that tease with each fluttering
My full heart flutters, Mary of Writing in the Bachs
I become dancer and dance
under April’s moon
and a blossoming cherry
in the sweet, full warmth of May Kay, an Unfittie
And we, resting far Sunflower Shan (Shanyn)
north where snow still flies and melts
await midnight sun.
Grace has challenged members and contributors at the writers group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads to write a group poem with alternating stanzas, 5/7/5 and 7/7.
I have been reading the others, and have been certain I had nothing to contribute, but finally decided to try.
