SPRING CLEANING


Take the letters from storage
in the curio cabinet
Polish until they shine
Rearrange into new words
on different shelves

Hang sentences in warm sunlight
Pin them tightly to a line
Beat old clichés 
until nouvelle phrases form
in dancing dust motes

Slap a modish coat of paint
on walls of my mind
Add revived rhymes to
tidbits of poems
boxed up in closets

Unwrap old friends    
Rebirth in spring’s air
A pristine backdrop for
signs of fresh times
in my life

    Oh, MOnterey, so sorry I have forgotten about the review. I need to make a note of it and get on it!!! So busy these days, and I sure appreciate all you do for me by reading MY works. Let me see this one now.

    Good use of words to paint a picture within the reader's mind and imagination. Emile.

    Loved your poem which gave me a great idea! I can tell my husband, "We only have to polish the letters, hang out the sentences and we're done!" Wonder if he'd go for that? Thanks..so delightful
