The Smell of Spring- Poem and artwork

Here is one of my favorite flowers Can you guess what it is?

I love the way the sun plays

With the shadows on the wall

Through the windows they create a cascade

Of clear golden showers for all.

I have to draw the light in so tight

And hold it close

I don’t want to let go of

This warmth that releases me.

I take it in, all the way in

I breathe in the soft glow

I am at once alive,

I can’t deny

The sun has saved

My silent soul.

When it is spring, I open windows wide

To breath in crisp air intermingled with spice.

I smell the wisps of perfume

When I am in my mother’s room.

What words could I use

To express the sweet bliss

Of fragrances that blend

All the smells are defined

In my nostrils

Completely intertwined.

Really Cool to watch

Great Song, Great Video

Beautiful poem. I love Spring it is my favorite season, however it seems to get shorter and shorter every year. There seems to be longer winters and summers and shorter Spring and Fall. Well done.

Hi ErinBright:

A poem high, where birds can dwell and tweet

So filled with light and life

And all I can think is

A rose my kingdom for a rose

To touch its smell

And feel this poem and in it dwell

My thanks I give

To words so wise

From an artist of note in any street

Who else could smell so sweet

Love ya work
