Almond Tree Beginning to Bloom
Blustery wind blows;
Spring, Winter: battle to the death.
Bright sunshine; blue sky.
About This Poem
When I wrote this in February of 2011, I was trying to come up with a visual of Spring transitioning from Winter.
I did do that, but after looking it over, I noticed it deviates from the strictly traditional format of 5/7/5 syllables, there being 8 syllables in the second line.
Maybe I'll fiddle with it some more; maybe I'll just leave it alone, and call it artistic license. ;-)
