From soft pink petals

A bee joins in the chorus.

Winging vibrato!

White rockets blast off

Spiraling green- stemmed trails.

Childish perception!

Sunlit tulips rise

They steal the oohs and aahs.

Spring celebrities!

Tall meadow flowers

Move jauntily in the breeze.

Only sky is blue.

In sweet-scented drifts

Of majestic sun-warmed bliss

I have lost myself.

Carefree hours pass.

Now my calla's golden spathe

Says it's afternoon!

      Such lovely poetry, cat. :-)

      My favorite of all these gems found here:

      "In sweet-scented drifts

      Of majestic sun-warmed bliss

      I have lost myself."
