Blue Spring

A feast presented
Rainbow's revival
Yellows, pinks, purples
But colors cure blinds
Unrecovered eyes

Clinging wet clouds
Shadows over
Sovereign spring blooms
Laid at my feet

Sunlit touch
Does not salve
Winter's wounds

I see
Only

Blue.

Lovely! Like in the song: And in each picture I meet you and only you, my spring.

Ah what a clever and interesting take on spring, questioning the “spring is in the air and everything is new and wonderful” cliché! Of course it’s not! Great DH, very thoughtfully done.

The depth of feeling...Spring does not relieve. Congratulations!

This is a different take on the theme and one I am sure we all can relate to. Beautiful weather but gloomy inside :(

Yes, sometimes even perfect weather will leave me feeling a bit cold inside, thanks for your comment!

Thanks, M.L, but in this case 'blue' means sad, like feeling blue, etc-

Perfect -- at least in the eyes of this beholder. G.L. in the contest, Michelle! Best wishes, Gershon

Michelle, your lovely poem is also realistic: spring's beauties don't heal all. Janice

We had a pretty spring day a while back, but I was in a 'blue' mood and couldn't enjoy it, which inspired this-

You are an emotionally connected poet. I enjoyed this piece.
