Spring and You

Lying in a verdant spring field,
scents of fruit and roses permeate the air;
thoughts of you are never far.
They caress like the sun's warm rays,
bringing a suffusion of joy to my heart.

The hum of occasional automobiles
blend with the drone of honey bees
lulling my senses like a Gregorian chant
in an Austrian monastery.

You and nature have become 
my tenants of religion,
calming my restless spirit;
soothing my soul, 
until I am a placid lake
soaking in all that is you.

There is a plethora of words to be had, why use the same ones? Although I must confess that every once in a while one gets caught rattling around in my head, and it shows up in several of my poems of the moment.

Such poetical thoughts and phrasing withing this wonderful life-sharing poetry. Spring! Yesssss . . . A wonderful time in the cycle of life. Add to that the mystery and contentment of love and you have something very nearly perfect.

I love this poem! It beautifully pictures the elements of spring in the reader's mind perfectly. I don't know what to say other than I love it! Is this possibly for the spring contest? Hugs, Angelica :3

Thanks you so much. I'm glad, because this is one I really like,too. (Is it okay to say you like your own work?) It was not written for a contest, but I will look and see if it fits any categories. I love the peace and contentment of spring! Hugs. ~jan
