At Spring Equinox

Poet's Notes

At winter’s departure - though I feel glad - I must remember that like human beings, Mother Nature needs a rest from her growing season; she will reawaken at spring equinox, shaking off her pretty white lace blanket. For the vernal season, Mother Nature dons her most beautiful green dresses. From month to month I see her change adornments - in March subtle; In April and May, though, she’s her fanciest as colorful buds peek out from her gown! March 29, 2016 for the Celebration Contest of Shadow Hamilton

Drown in flowers wearing a beautiful gown in the shape of a crown and soft like pillow made out of down.

How pretty, the white lace blanket. I think you did well with this Celebration poem, and a good idea to make Mother Nature change her dress (in Idaho she's a bit insane, always changing her clothes midday, when none sees it coming) ... best of luck, Andrea!
