Finally Spring Snippets

Carol A. Hand

May 2017

After waiting patiently through summer, fall, and snow

a mystery of the willow is finally revealed

***

Willow – Female Catkin – May 2017

***

Catkins bloom on swaying branches as gentle breezes blow

answering my question about gender, an enigma unsealed

***

Beloved Willow – May 2017

***

now that the eagerly anticipated spring has belatedly begun

she reaches gracefully toward the morning sun

***

May 2017

***

A lone tulip emerges amid the ferns during these warming days

her petals open oh so slightly – a response to my loving gaze?

***

May 2017

***

Ah what is that sweet gentle scent I’ve not noticed in the past

Bleeding hearts are nodding to unveil their spring gifts at last

  1. Ah, the bleeding hearts are beautiful. I’ve never seen these before. And your poem is a fine compliment to them.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Peter. I’m glad you discovered bleeding hearts. They’re one of the first things to bloom here and grow despite the ever-changing weather. (I wonder if they sense a kindred spirit?)
