The Harlots of Spring

The harlot maples crimson tipped nails
tap, drum, strum, and plunk;
at Aprils blasted blue sky.
Raking a wind born trail 
across skeletal palms
and forearmed branches,
in a come-hither dance;
reawakening the cerulean stratus 
above the dense sugar maple forest.
Sap taps a tune into tin buckets;
and, so, Spring is sprung.

    Thank you for commenting on my poem as it has led me to yours, just read through a whole batch of them. Really nice to be reading something different on here rather than the same old that had been on this site for a while. Commenting on this one in particular as I think its one of my favs. Naomi ps any critique you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

    "Sap taps a tune into tin buckets;/and, so, Spring is sprung." Stunning lines, Deborah! Ruben.

    Rhythm, rhythm, rhythm ... and it all flow so easily through the light forest of images that speak of a cerebral beauty born to seduce the soul and the eye. Awesome investigation of spring ... almost a Constable or a Titan. Love and peace.
