Blackberry Winter

crocus in snow

We’d already rejoiced

With winter’s passing –

Left shoveling snow

On rock hard ground

and shivering through

blue-black nights

with a million stars.

 

We’d welcomed days

of endless sun

with gentle breezes

where daffodils danced

and robins played.

 

But it’s all come back now

Dreary grey clouds

bring an endless return

of icy rain

with shivering winds

and pelting sleet.

Just cold gloomy skies that

Over cast

The now browning

Peach buds –

no blossoms

left of summer’s

fruit.

 

But there is hope

the days will lengthen

the sun will shine

the earth will warm

someday

one day

soon.

    Well done. Waiting a little impatiently for all the drama to clear and the sun to come out and to stay here.

    I’m a little behind in reading blogs, but loved the poem. Good Job my friend.
