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

Perfect! A little Greenhouse!

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
