SPRING DANCE

chlorophyll greenery, Spring’s creamery daffodils chock-full of light. bees alight; honey wings. violette clematis rife — the ribbon wraps ‘round my neighbor’s mailbox. her preserve rocks wildlife. the southern cottonwood tree sheds seeds of tumbleweed-like fluff, blowing in warm wind; swing drifts free. sights and sounds all around us. He darkens our world, likewise lights it up God fills our cups no muss. the music of the starshine, the invitation of the moon halo — romance slow; paintbrush pines. 5/24/2020 the englyn byr cwca is a Welsh form that uses both end and internal rhymes poem comprised of tercets (from one tercet to infinity) or 3-line stanzas first line has 7 syllables, second has 10, and third has 6 lines 1 and 3 end rhyme with each other line 2 rhymes with a syllable somewhere in the middle of the 3

The tiniest dewdrop hanging from a grass blade in the morning is big enough to reflect the sunshine and the blue of the sky. Fair well my friend.

The cottonwood tree is the only tree I am not allergic too, and I have always adored it. I truly adore your description of it!

You missed the magic of cottonwood fluff floating on the wind just in time for birds to snatch it to feather their nests, but otherwise quite delightful. Aloha! Rico

Lush with Spring's imagery,... I really love how you ended this, Kim: 'paintbrush pines.' ~ From the land of postcard sunsets. (Really! Chicago's can be amazing, surprisingly). Smiles, Gershon

When my son lived in Chicago, they had a huge picture window with fantastic sunlight, plants indoors. Enjoyed! Thanks, Gershon!
