The Kiss of Spring

.                                          T ulips coated in dewy waxen gloss
                                           U ndulating their warm fragrant breath 
                                           L eaving -  that cold hearted Mr. Frost
                                           I n a
                                           P uddle of tears
                                           S creaming - Spring is here!

    Congratulations on the win of this superbe write! Enjoyed the great imagery. Spring has arrived at our neighbour's across the road, Elaine. They got tulips at the same time we got our dandelions. The lilac and peonies will take their time. Blah blah blah.....:) Have a great day!! Mikki
