High Above Sea Level......

Click thumbnail to view full-size

Where misty clouds move swiftly
along the lay of the land
Falling snows adhere to everything
like rain soaking into sand

A different wind blows sneaking
through the hidden hollows
As sky shadows too compete for
attention into the tomorrows

Today the red -tailed hawk returning from
 equatorial manger..... hovers high
And spring snows regress beyond the
covered flower beds in a sigh

And soon .....soon the vibrant green
coat of spring reborn
Covering every view open now
until autums sounding horn

If I Could I'd spend the rest of
my life just observing
Tasting the beauty of morning as
it gives to those deserving

And who deserves it more than those
who give unending from within
Like the soft rays of sunshine
at the birthing of spring


Dedicated to the daughters ....mothers.... sisters and wives who give so much without question .........the magic of spring and the earths rebirthing is a sign from above just for you  it is the nectar of life itself........

Although we had snow yesterday I still have hope that the flowers will soon peek up. After reading your poem you have restored my faith that spring will have sprung shortly. Thank you :)

Wow, hard to believe everyone is not having spring, but if you had done all the yard work we had to do yesterday mowing and getting spring looking you may be glad to still have snow. When it gets any hotter than this I just have to go out super early and here that is like super late, mosquitoes love me! But thankfully they haven't hatched yet!
