Easter's Promise I gather images of Easter's sign, bouquets of varied thoughts and memories: emerging crocus, budding branch, and vine, the flutter of the robin in the breeze. Symbolic, too, the lily, pure and white, new chicks and bunnies, butterflies galore. The fading, icy sting of winter's night replaced by spring's warm day, long waited for. I contemplate each image and I know the thrill of surging hope that swells my soul. New life, from dormant seed, will rise and show how spring joy resurrects from winter's dole. A new beginning blooms for us, and earth... for, Easter promises her gift...rebirth. March 15, 2016

Sandra, congratulations on your first-place win in my contest, a podium you share with Nina. Not only could I feel "hope" throughout your lovely poem, but the sonnet is in the perfect form of iambic pentameter. Please send me a Soup Mail and let me know where to send your prize. Also, let me know if your ears are pierced and if you wear earrings. Congrats again, Carolyn

Hi Sandra, a beautiful song to the joys of Spring. Your words do touch the heart so gently. Once more, your words just bring peace to me. A well crafted piece Sandra. Your words just flow like a song from the page. Such beautiful images your words create. A beautiful ode to Spring....Vlad. This is a seven and it sings its way into my faves....Vlad.
